Transfer Talk - Isco and Eriksen


It is no surprise that 25-year-old (26 next April) Spanish international midfielder Isco has agreed on a new contract that is worth more than £98,000 a week (£5.1 million annually) with Real Madrid. I expected him to stay, few players leave the biggest club in the world unless they are pushed out and the whole issue has been about game time, nothing else.

Marca report he will now be on the fifth-highest salary tier at Los Blancos, behind only Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric. The deal had been on offer since December and with the increased game time Isco was getting father and representative Paco Alarcon agreed to the deal. Having said that, he is left out of the big games, he wasn't in the starting line up against Barcelona, a game Messi turned around and brought Barcelona back into the title race.

Catalan journalist Albert Masnou who works for the third highest specialist sports daily circulation newspaper Sport, based in Barcelona didn't think the rumpurs that Barcelona were interested in Christian Eriksen were true.

“I do not know, I really do not know. I don’t have any information about it from the club, and I don’t know if Eriksen is actually on Barcelona’s wish list. The rumour comes from the English press, and we have only published what they said. At present we do not have any information from the club that Christian Eriksen is a possibility for the club.”

So yet another story made up by the British gutter press, last week it was unreliable, not reliable as Football Insider claim today, Sky journalist Gianluca Di Marzio who suggested Toby Alderweireld had told Tottenham he wants to leave just before an FA Cup semi-final against his friend Antonio Conte's team.

I did hear rumours last summer that Eriksen might leave after one more season, but we have challenged at the top of the table again so I wouldn't expect him to seek a move anywhere this summer.
