Isco seduced by MLS move more than Everton, only few options left
With the January transfer window over, Everton can only sign free agents at the moment, but Isco appears to be more seduced by a move to the MLS in the USA, according to Estadio Deportivo.
The 30-year-old attacking midfielder is without a club at the moment, and his options are limited. Everton are being mentioned as one of his suitors, while there was interest in him from clubs in Turkey.
The Spaniard, however, is attracted by a move to the MLS, following a failed transfer to Union Berlin last month.
Of all the players available for free, Isco is the most decorated of them all. He spent nine seasons with Real Madrid and enjoyed great success with the mega-rich club.
He won the Champions League five times, the Club World Cup four times, La Liga three times, the Uefa Super Cup three times and one Copa del Rey, and has got an impressive CV.

However, after his contract has been terminated by Sevilla, he is now looking for a new club. The player was close to joining Union Berlin but he had priced himself out of a deal on the transfer deadline day.
Everton are probably in need of a creative attacking playmaker following the exit of Anthony Gordon, but it’s better not to waste money on Isco.
The primary focus should be to avoid relegation and Sean Dyche has got enough resources to carry out the job. The money could be better used in the summer window.
Isco will ask for ridiculous money and the club will have to break their wage structure to accommodate him. Then again, we don’t know whether he will be able to adjust to the pace of the league, which means, it’s a massive gamble.
The club have taken a lot of gamble over the years. For once, they can stop doing that.
