Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Real Madrid star Isco emerged as a target for Premier League champions Manchester City and the Citizens will have to meet his transfer clause to sign him.
Although the Spanish football star is under contract at Real Madrid till the year 2022, but lack of active playing time this season at the Bernabeu could force him out of the club.
Manchester City are said to be readying a bid of around £80m, but Real Madrid will be reluctant to accept anything below €100m (£89.95m).
