Mauricio Isla: Udinese will let me leave at the end of the season

The Chile international has been heavily linked with a move to Inter but his agent claimed during the January transfer window that Liverpool were also keen on the player
Mauricio Isla looks to have played his last game for Udinese after revealing that the club have agreed to let him leave at the end of the season.

The Chile international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Friuli since last summer, with Inter said to be leading the chase for his signature.

Isla, who suffered a season-ending knee injury against AC Milan last weekend, has repeatedly spoken of his desire to try his luck at a bigger club and has now announced that he is likely to depart in June.

“I talked to Gino Pozzo [son of Udinese owner Giampaolo], who decided to let me go at the end of the season,” the right wing-back told La Tercera.

“I do not exclude the possibility of staying as I was asked to stay for another year. But, for now, all I think about is recovering from this injury as soon as possible.”

Isla's agent claimed earlier this month that Juventus, Roma and Liverpool are also tracking the versatile 23-year-old.
