Once one of the brightest talent in the Real Madrid squad, the Spanish international Isco is now unwanted by the Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.

Arguably the best dribbler in the Real Madrid side, the 28 years old Spanish international has had a seven year spell with the La Liga side in which he has won two La Liga titles and four Champions League titles.
However this season, Zinedine Zidane has granted Isco only two starts, both of which lasted less than an hour. Isco who was on the bench in the Classico was heard joking about his boss. He was heard saying, "If [Zidane] has to take me off, he takes me off in the 50th or 60th minute, sometimes at half-time."If he has to bring me on, he brings me on in the 80th minute."
Earlier in the campaign against Cadiz, the Spanish superstar was subbed off at half time by Zidane, but he defended his player saying that "There's always going to be criticism, even when we win."Isco is a decisive player, he's always shown that and I have no doubt in my mind."We want to change things and we will, Isco just like everyone else. I have no doubt about it."
The Spaniard was at his best when he was playing for the present Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti. Isco won a Champions League and a Copa Del Rey title while playing for the present Everton boss.
Given Isco’s present relationship with Zidane, it is not surprising to see Isco opting to reunite with his former boss and teammate James Rodriguez, who is doing very well at Everton.
Real Madrid are reportedly happy to let the midfielder go out on a loan in January with an obligation to buy for 18 million pounds.
With only 28, Isco still has a lot of good years ahead of him and his former teammate James Rodriguez has shown that it is possible to shine elsewhere outside of Madrid. Reuniting with his former boss Ancelotti might just be the remedy that Isco needs to revive his career.
