Manchester United manager is a big fan of Real Madrid midfielder Isco and he has shown his desire to lure him to Old Trafford in January.

Though snatching Isco from Lopetegui’s watch might be a very difficult task, Mourinho could render Pogba as a makeshift in his desire to get his target in the winter window ahead of Juventus.

Should Mourinho capture the brilliant midfielder, where and how can he deploy him to get the best out of him.


Isco is a player known for his hard work in the middle of the pitc h,therefore he would be a perfect third-man at the center of the park.

Fellaini – Matic -Isco ( 4 : 2 : 1 : 3 formation)

This tactical approach will see the Real Madrid man feature as an attacking midfielder. The 25-year-old has great dribbling skills and huge ability to pass the ball perfectly.

He will be behind the front men, creating opportunities for them and also try scoring in some cases.

Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini will cover ground for him whenever he dash forward with the ball at his feet.

Isco-Matic- Fred ( 4-3-3 Formation)

With this formation, the versatile player would serve as a defensive midfielder alongside Serbian international Matic, while, Fred will serve as the playmaker.

Isco is strong on the ball, it will be difficult for strikers to get past him in a one-on-one situation.

Matic will use his height in dealing with up balls.


Sanchez – Lukaku – Isco

Though the player hasn’t feature regularly as a winger, Mourinho could sparingly use him at the right flank. He might not be the best in this position but it’s certain to see much and accurate crosses into opponent’s 18-yard box from the Spanish international.
