Insider delivers latest update on Tottenham’s link to Real Madrid man
Guillem Balague has told Tottenham fans to forget about signing Isco in January
Guillem Balague has told Tottenham fans to forget about signing Isco in the January transfer window.
The Lilywhites have been touted as a possible destination for the striker should he opt to leave Real Madrid in search of regular playing time.
However, Spanish football expert Balague has poured cold water on those reports by insisting that Real Madrid have no intention of selling the 24-year-old striker.
Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Balague was asked by one fan whether Tottenham could be set to make a move for Isco.
And Balague replied: “Forget it, it’s not going to happen. Zero chances of that happening. Real are seeing that he is improving and they are thinking of giving him a new contract.
“Remember, Real cannot sign for two transfer windows.”
Tottenham returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Saturday when they twice came from behind to earn a 3-2 win over West Ham at White Hart Lane.
The north London side travel to Chelsea in their next Premier League game on Saturday evening as they look to climb the top flight table.
Spurs finished in third place in the Premier League last season.
