Spanish midfielder Isco is once again being touted with a move to Manchester City. Mundo Deportivo reports the blues are prepared to offer £70m for the 26 year old midfielder, who has only made 21 starts for Real Madrid this season. Isco also reportedly claimed he does not have the trust of head coach Zinedane Zidane.

It’s not the first time Isco has been linked with a move to City. It was rumoured that former manager Manuel Pellegrini would bring Isco with him when he joined the blues from Malaga in 2013, only for the Spaniard to join Real instead, but City have bene linked with him ever since.

Meanwhile the Manchester Evening News reports City want to add Jorginho from Napoli, Riyad Mahrez from Leicester and Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen, three players who have already been linked to the blues since January.

Jorginho has already been well documented, with his agent saying the Italy international will join the blues if they can agree a fee with Napoli. Mahrez meanwhile was a January target for City, but rejected the blues bids that were in excess of £50m, although it has been rumoured that Leicester will finally sell the Algerian winger to the blues this summer.

20 year old Bailey is another option as manager Pep Guardiola seeks to add more youth to his squad, however the blues could face competition from Guardiola’s previous club Bayern Munich, who were reported to have tabled a £52m offer for the Jamaican.

The Evening News also claims the blues have given up on signing Eden Hazard and Kylian Mbappe, but also say club insiders believe there is a ‘remote possibility’ of still signing one of them.

Who will Pep sign this summer? Who should he sign?
