Reports making the round claims Chelsea could ‘abandon’ a deal for Isco this winter despite a £75million fee has been agreed.
According to a UK Metro report citing Sun, Chelsea and Isco representatives had agreed a £75m deal including add-ons sending the deal to £100m, but the Los Blancos star suddenly demanded for more ‘cash’ after late interest from Paris Saint-Germain.
Isco now faces a tough spell at the Los Blancos as the Santiago dwellers were looking forward to cash in on a midfielder no longer in the club’s long-term plans.
On the other hand, Chelsea boss Mauricio Sarri is reportedly devastated with the club’s decision with the surprise U-turn, as the Italian was already preparing to play Isco along with talisman Eden Hazard.
Speaking last week Isco revealed he had no plans to leave Real Madrid in the January transfer window.
“I’m very excited about the new year,” Isco was quoted as saying to Deportes Cuatro.
“I’m not going to go in the winter market, I’m very happy, of course I want to continue with Madrid to continue winning titles,” he added.
Chelsea are expected to sign a new striker this January with Sarri eyeing the pair of Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and AC Milan’s Gonzalo Higuain.
