Milan has joined the race to sign Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco, according to Onda Cero.

At the tender age of 23, Isco's dribbling, in addition to his passing and powerful shot permits him to be a true prospect who would undoubtedly add to Milan's lineup.

Milan showcased its interest for the player once Isco requested a transfer because of his lack of playing time. Madrid is only willing to release Isco on loan, so Milan gained the upper hand over clubs like Manchester City, who wanted a permanent deal. Tuttosport observed there is an excellent rapport between the two clubs, as they have exchanged players many times before, so the deal is possible.

If this deal actually pulls through, Milan would have signed another world-class player who could easily propel himself to the best player in the Milan squad.

However, it was not long ago CEO Adriano Galliani claimed no big names would join Milan in January unless a big name left the club. He then added medium players will be replaced by medium players.

This comment exposed the lack of initiative and funding Milan is currently suffering from. It is true that typically no large transfers are executed in January. But if Milan is to return to being a top club in Europe it needs significantly more big names to bolster its roster. Galliani may end up eating his words.
