Juventus reportedly make Real Madrid forward Isco No. 1 summer target

Juventus have reportedly made Real Madrid attacker Isco their top summer transfer target.

According to Italian daily newspaperTuttosport, the Bianconeri are keen to capitalise on the Spanish international's lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabéu this season.

Isco has made just five LaLiga starts this term – but none since Santiago Solari replaced Julen Lopetegui as head coach on October 30.

Furthermore,Tuttosport claim the decision to replace the injured Gareth Bale with Brazilian prodigy Vinícius Júnior – rather than the more experienced Isco – for Sunday's 2-0 home defeat to Real Sociedad was a clear indication the Spanoard does not feature in Solari's plans.

After making just 21 LaLiga appearances last season, it was expected that Isco would play a more prominent role at Real this season following Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus.

However, Zinedine Zidane's decision to step down as head coach in the summer has not helped the 26-year-old's case and he finds himself on the periphery in the Spanish capital.

Isco is contracted to Real Madrid until 2022 and while he has been afforded just six substitute outings since the end of October, the UEFA Champions League holders will not let the former Málaga attacker leave cheaply. 

Speaking at the end of December, Isco said of his future: “I'm not thinking about leaving in the winter market,” he told Deportes Cuatro. “I'm very happy. My goal is to win many titles at Real Madrid.”
