Chelsea still favourite to land £90m-rated La Liga star


English Premier League side Chelsea are believed to be favourites in the race to land Spanish giants Real Madrid star Isco.

This is after reports claim that both parties have held talks on a possible move to the Stamford Bridge which has been positive so far.

Suggestions are that the West London side are at an advantage because of the reports that their star player and Belgium international Eden Hazard will be moving to the Spanish La Liga side at the end of the season.

The Blues are also expected to be short of options anytime soon aside from the Belgium man with former Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas seeking a move away from the Stamford Bridge as a result of his lack of playing time at the club.

Maurizio Sarri who is already preparing for the expected departure of Eden Hazard is seeking to land Isco at all cost in the winter window and will no doubt meet with the asking price for the player.

The likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool are reported to be interested in the star player but Real Madrid have already had an understanding with the English side according to reports.

However, Chelsea must meet up with his £100 million release clause or lose out on the player.
