Bid tabled; Chelsea on the verge of sealing deal for first January signing

Chelsea will pay a hefty sum to sign befuddled Madrid star Isco in January.

Isco has struggled to pick off from where he left off under former bosses Zinedine Zidane and Julen Lopetegui and could be counting his days at the Bernabeu.

The Spaniard has fallen down the pecking order at Real Madrid since new boss Santiago Scolari took the helm of the outfit.

Isco has managed just one appearance this term under Scolari, including racking up another five from the bench.

Isco is a first-team choice, but with Madrid tumbling down over and over after getting hit by several managerial and transfer knocks, they still can put a foot to the ground.

Isco is determined to leave after an awful first half of the La Liga season and Chelsea could be his ticket away from the Bernabeu.

The Blues are bumping up a whopping 70 million pounds fee to bring the attacker to Stamford Bridge.

After getting cutting remarks from the fans following his gloom showoff in Madrid’s 3-0 loss to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, Chelsea are ready to offer the 26-year-old a four-and-a-half year deal worth £250,000-a-week.

Sarri, according to The Sun who be pleased to welcome Isco. The Italian is planning to pair him alongside Hazard next year.
