Guardiola is interested in bringing in Isco as his successor, according to Spanish publication Marca, with Los Blancos also open to selling their creative midfielder.

In order to recover funds, Zinedine Zidane is prepared to let several superstars leave the Bernabeu, including Isco, Gareth Bale, and James Rodriguez.

Real want €80m (£71m) for Isco, as per Marca, with different clubs across Europe registering interest in the Spain international.

The 27-year-old is currently contracted to Real until 2022 where he reportedly receives €6m (£5.39m) per season.

Isco won the Copa del Rey with Madrid in his first season after getting a move from Malaga back in 2013.
