Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is intent on landing Real Madrid’s Isco in January but Daniel Levy’s poor relationship with the Spanish club could cast doubt on a deal, according to Marca.
The diminutive Spain international has been short of opportunities to play for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in recent times and was linked with a move to White Hart Lane in the summer transfer window.

With Isco’s fortunes not improving of late under Zinedine Zidane, the potential for an exit from the capital city side could be on the cards in January.
The Spanish press are reporting that Pochettino sees the former Malaga playmaker as the ideal mid-season addition to boost the amount of attacking quality at his disposal.
However, Levy has left a sour taste in the mouth of many in Madrid by playing hardball in previous deals.
The Tottenham chairman held out for big fees when selling both Luka Modric and Gareth Bale to Los Blancos, with the latter a world-record deal back in 2013.
The report states that Madrid are reluctant to have to deal with Levy again and if Spurs try to sign Isco in the new year the chairman could receive a dose of his own medicine.
