Ancelotti's Everton thinks of Isco

Isco Alarcón is in the sights of Everton. Carlo Ancelotti is aware of the situation of the Malaga player at the Santiago Bernabéu and believes that he could fit into his project at Goodison Park for next season as he has already achieved with James Rodríguez.

As reported by the Daily Mirror, Everton is already working on getting the services of the midfielder and they are thinking of different formulas to bring the talent of Arroyo de la miel to the north of England. Although he is not one of the players that counts the most for Zinedine Zidane, Isco does not plan to leave in January and will fight for the position until the end of the season. When it ends and the transfer market begins next summer, the player values ​​a change of scene. The interest is. The next thing will be the offer.

Real Madrid will calculate if the departure of the midfielder will compensate him since what he may receive for this would fit into the financing plan for the signing of Kylian Mbappé. The Frenchman will enter his last season of contract with Paris Saint-Germain (they are linked until 2022) and from the noble floor of the Bernabéu they know that it is the summer marked in red to try to get the player who seems predestined to dominate the next decade in world football. His departure would help Real Madrid to raise the immense amount necessary for the French capital club to be willing to release its star.

Since the arrival of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid, Isco Alarcón has gone through peaks and valleys regarding the state of form and moments of relationship with Marseille, which has never put him among the fixed numbers of eleven. In the 4-3-3 he never finished ousting the Casemiro, Kroos and Modric although he did shine in the final stretch of the season of the League-Champions double when Zidane went to 4-1-2-1-2 where he acted as playmaker, his original position, behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema and ahead of the aforementioned trio. Starting from there he scored the goal that ended up giving the pass to the Cardiff final against Atlético at the Vicente Calderón after that dribble by Benzema and was also key to disarm the defense of Juventus, the other BBC, and win the title of European champion.


This season, Isco is framed in unit B, in which he alternates starting matches to give rest to fixed theorists with matches in which he tries to appear as a revulsive in the second half. The one from Arroyo de la Miel started against Valladolid (he played 57 minutes) but he barely accumulates 177 minutes so far in the League and has not appeared in El Clásico or in the Champions League. So far this season he has not scored yet nor has he given any goal pass.

The toffee set appears as a possible next destination for Isco Alarcón and also as an oasis in the Premier League to enjoy the 22 of Real Madrid. Carletto's team is betting on quality players without the need to have notable physical qualities (if good form but not great top speed) in a league where high pace reigns. The path of James Rodríguez, his former teammate at Real Madrid, seems the way to go for Isco. Ancelotti has found a place in Everton for one of his favorite players on the right wing where with his left foot he seeks the 10 lane from outside and to feed Calvert-Lewin or Richarlison. The Englishman is, surely, delighted with the arrival of the Colombian where he has found a partner who provides him with quality balls that have already allowed him to score seven goals in just six Premier matches (he has 10 in total) and be the second top scorer in the English League.

The best explanation of what Ancelotti expects from James and it is hoped that he will ask Isco for the Jerry Mina in AS this Sunday. “He has the advantage that before receiving the ball he already knows where he has to play it and that gives us enormous agility in the attacks. It has brought us closer together in terms of speed for the transition “, explains about the Colombian. This task of offering speed with the ball, it seems, could also be fulfilled by the Spanish.

Under Carlo Ancelotti, Isco was one of the important players, accumulating up to 106 games in just two seasons. The Italian was the first coach to meet in Madrid and he always had him. While they met in Madrid, Isco lived a remarkable stretch of his career playing as a midfielder in Carletto's classic 4-3-3 but also on the wing in a 4-4-2. A new adventure calls for the man from Malaga who, like James, could be resurrected on Liverpool's blue shore.
