Isco Caught Between Manchester/Madrid

Spain starlet Isco is tearing up the European Under 21 championships in Israel, just like he did in La Liga for Malaga last season.

The attacking midfielder is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in world football, and has a bright future ahead of him at the pinnacle of club and international football.

Although he has three years left on his current deal with Malaga, the club’s money woes mean that Isco is likely to be sold for a meaty fee before next season.

He has been linked to Manchester City, where his former coach at Malaga, Manuel Pellegrini, will soon be unveiled as manager, and would love to reunite with him.

Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly also keen to sign Isco, where he could be the perfect long-term replacement for ageing disappointment Kaka, and where his Spanish Under 21 team-mate Alvaro Morata is also being touted as a future star.

With two huge clubs clamouring for his services, Isco has the football world at his feet.

And he admits that it would be a tough decision whether to join City or Madrid.

"My future nobody knows. Pellegrini is my footballing father, who gives me confidence - so you have to think about [Manchester] City and look at it," Isco said, according to AS.

"And Madrid? There is that, so we see what happens."

Where should Isco go: the Etihad or the Bernabeu?
