Manchester United are ready to make a January raid on Real Madrid for gifted playmaker Isco, according to The Mirror.

The Spain international was linked with an exit from the capital city side in the final days of the summer transfer window but ended up staying with Los Blancos.

However, Isco has found first-team football hard to come by at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the likes of Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modric and others blocking his path in Zinedine Zidane’s starting XI.

With reports in the Spanish press this week that the former Malaga playmaker will be granted a transfer in the new year, talk of a potential switch to the Premier League has been rife.

Although Tottenham have been the side most-commonly linked with Isco, United are now being touted as a potential suitor.

With Wayne Rooney’s role in the Red Devils starting XI being questioned in recent weeks, the Spaniard could well provide competition for places at Old Trafford.
