Isco says he has received offers from both Manchester City and Real Madrid but the Málaga midfielder insists he hasn’t spoken to Manuel Pellegrini.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium in recent weeks before Pellegrini was confirmed as the club’s new manager on Friday.

Isco has played a key role in helping Spain reach the European Under-21 championship final in Israel, and the playmaker is yet to make a decision on his future.

“Well, I have two offers on the table,” Isco told AS English.

He added: “I hope to make my decision soon although right now, I am still under contract with Málaga.

“I know that both Manchester City and Real Madrid are two great clubs. I just want the best outcome for me and for Málaga.”

Isco quashed reports that the midfielder has spoken with his former manager about a move to the Citizens but backed Pellegrini to be a success at City.

“No I haven’t spoken to him,” Isco said.

“I found out that he would be joining City on the internet at the time but he hasn’t phoned me.

“He is a great coach and I hope that it all works out for him in England. He is a fabulous coach – one who did a fantastic job at Málaga – just like he did for his previous clubs so I am sure he will do an equally good job over there.”

However, Isco admitted that the chance to work under Pellegrini was a factor to take into consideration as the Málaga star makes his decision.

“Of course, Pellegrini is someone who I already know, I know how he works and he has played a fundamental role in my career during the two seasons he was at Málaga,” he added.

“It’s a factor in favour that we have been at the same club and that I know his working methods but I would say that it would be a decisive factor.”
