Maurizio Sarri will move for Real Madrid attacker Isco once he is appointed Juventus boss, according to a report.
Maurizio Sarri will reportedly target a move for Real Madrid attacker Isco once he is appointed Juventus boss.
Sarri is still in charge of Chelsea but the Italian has emerged as the favourite to replace Massimiliano Allegri as head coach of the Italian champions ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
According to Tuttosport, Sarri’s first task upon arriving in Turin will be to move for Isco, who only started 11 La Liga matches during the 2018-19 campaign after struggling for form.
The 27-year-old, who could be available for £60m, still has three years left to run on his contract at the Bernabeu but could be made surplus to requirements this summer as Zinedine Zidane prepares to rebuild the squad.
Isco ended the recent season with six goals and one assist in 37 appearances for Madrid.
Manchester United and Manchester City are also both said to be monitoring developments ahead of a potential move for the playmaker.
