Chelsea set to launch ambitious bid for Real Madrid ace Isco

Isco has been at Real Madrid since 2013.

However, he has suffered a serious dip in form and could soon be on the move.

Chelsea have had their transfer ban lifted, which means the Blues can now sign players starting January after failing to recruit in the summer transfer window. Reports suggested that new head coach Frank Lampard would be given as much as €175 million to spend in the January transfer window to make up for the lack of business in the summer, but recruitment will be a lot more complicated than that.

Lampard wants players that a lot of top European clubs want, so bringing the right player in could require more patience than Chelsea fans are willing to accept. Keeping that in mind, El Desmarque are now reporting that the Londoners want to get their hands on an attacking star, and consider Real Madrid playmaker Isco as the right man to bring in.

There was a point not so long ago at which it seemed that the Spain international was as good as finished as a Real Madrid player, at least as long as Zinedine Zidane was at the club. Indeed, the midfielder was a peripheral figure over the early part of the season. Even as injuries struck Real Madrid hard, the likes of James Rodriguez were preferred.

But then Isco was surprisingly dropped into the lineup to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League a few weeks ago and he took the opportunity with both hands. The 27-year-old impressed against the French champions and played a key role in what was, until a late collapse, a strong Real Madrid performance.

Isco played in the most recent El Clasico against Barcelona, but reports seem to suggest that Zinedine Zidane could let him leave, though it may not be in January. An ambitious bid of €52 million could come the way of Los Blancos for Isco, which may not be enough considering the competition Chelsea would face for his services. That being said, should Madrid be able to sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United, they might be more willing to let Isco leave for Stamford Bridge at a similar price.
