Arsenal have been handed a massive blow in signing Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
The Spaniard Isco will sign a new contract at Real Madrid, scuppering speculation that he could join Arsenal, Manchester United or Tottenham.
The Sun credits that Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer of the attacking midfielder and it was previously thought he may be attainable given his role as an understudy at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 25-year-old played a big part in Real Madrid’s La Liga and Champions League success last season, however, and starred for Spain in their 3-0 World Cup qualifying victory against Italy last week, scoring twice and humiliating Marco Verratti with a nutmeg that has since gone viral.
That has prompted Florentino Perez to sign Isco to a new deal, with the Real Madrid president revealing an announcement is imminent.
