Both Rodriguez and Isco haven’t exactly had the best of times at Los Blancos these past few years, and now, it seems like the pair could be offered a way out of the Santiago Bernabeu by Milan.


Rodriguez has spent the last two years on loan at Bayern Munich, with the Colombian’s future now up the air after the Bundesliga outfit decided not to make his temporary move a permanent one.


Isco has spent the last two years at Real, however unlike Rodriguez, the Spaniard has struggled to maintain any consistent form, as he bagged just three goals and one assist for the club in 27 La Liga appearances last term.


Milan's €100M move for both Rodriguez and Isco is a move that Real should probably accept should the Italian giants end up going through with it.


Despite their Real futures looking uncertain at this point in time, both Isco and Rodriguez are still two of the best midfield talents in Europe, and Milan would be seriously bolstering their options in the middle of the park should their pursuit of the duo be successful this summer.

If Real do manage to bring in a fee of around €100M for Isco and Rodriguez, it should be seen as great business from Los Blancos seeing as the pair most likely won’t get much game time this season due to the additions Zidane’s made to his squad recently.


Meanwhile, AC Milan are closing in on the signing of Angel Correa, after several weeks of negotiations with Atletico Madrid.


The player’s agent arrived in Milan today in an attempt to unlock the deal. Therefore, in the coming days (maybe even hours), the Rossoneri could decide to accelerate the negotiations for the Argentine striker.

Correa will add important versatility to Giampaolo’s attacking force. In fact, he can play as a trequartista and in the second-striker role.


Therefore, he will increase the level of internal competition up front, ready to battle it out with Rafael Leao for the spot next to Piatek. At the same time, he will be able to fill in behind the striker whenever Suso needs rest.
