According to the latest reports Real Madrid midfielder Isco Alarcon has made it quite clear that he is not a fan of current club manager Santiago Solari after liking a post that slammed the Argentine manager. The rumors claim that Isco is now pushing for a move away from the Spanish capital in the January transfer window itself. Real Madrid currently finds themselves in a really challenging position as the Los Blancos languish in 5th place on the La Liga table 10 points behind fierce rivals Barcelona 18 games into the campaign. After the stunning sale of Portuguese talisman Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer when the 33-year-old moved to Italian side Juventus, Real Madrid has not quite looked like a champion side. The veteran winger left the Santiago Bernabeu as the club’s all-time top goalscorer with 450 goals. Even the departure of French manager Zinedine Zidane in the summer has contributed to Madrid’s downfall this season.
Zidane won three Champions League titles in just two and a half years with Madrid and was replaced by Julen Lopetegui after the Spaniard stepped down from the national team job before the FIFA World Cup 2018.
One star player who was the key to Real Madrid’s success over the past half a decade was Spanish play-maker Isco Alcaron. The midfield maestro was superb under Zidane when Madrid won the Champions League trophy four times in five seasons. Isco was one of the players that most fans expected to step up and fill in the boots for Ronaldo. But when Lopetegui took charge of Madrid, the under-fire manager was sacked following a poor start to the season. Now under Santiago Solari, Isco is struggling to get regular football at the Spanish capital and is linked to leave the club in the winter transfer window.
In fact, Isco has taken his displeasure of not playing regularly on social media when he like a post which slammed Solari’s starting eleven and leaving Isco out of the team. Isco was expected to make a rare start in the last 16 ties against Leganes during the Copa Del Rey clash on Wednesday after returning from injury problems. But once again Isco found himself starting on the bench and this raised quite a few eyebrows regarding a deteriorating relationship between Solari and Isco.
The 26-year-old was clearly unhappy with Solari as the Argentine manager picked Dani Ceballos and out of favor midfielder Casemiro over Isco and liked a post on Twitter from the dressing room which criticized the decision.
‘He [Solari] has picked Dani Ceballos and an out-of-form Casemiro, and even though he retired 20 years ago he’d pick himself before fielding Isco,’ tweeted user @iepanto.
To avoid controversy, Isco immediately unliked the post and removed it but reporters were quick to pounce on the midfielders at the moment rage.
There is no doubt that a host of Premier League clubs have been already linked with the star and want to bring Isco to England in the winter transfer window. The 26-year-old play-maker is also said to be keen on moving away from Real Madrid in search for regular game time, it has been said already. Only time will tell what will happen now.
