Even if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, and Arsenal are the club in pole position to secure the transfer of the Real Madrid aand Spain international star Isco in the summer, there would still be a few things that could stop the stuning transfer to north London going ahead.
According to The Sun the deal is arranged for Arsenal to sign the talented young Spaniard for £35 million once the summer transfer window opens. We are also said to have first refusal on the attacking midfielder, so if another club does decide to offer Madrid morte money for their player then Arsene Wenger would be given the option to match it and still get his man.
So that is one of the things that could stop Arsenal getting Isco. Another way would be for either Isco or the Spanish club to change their minds abut the move. At the moment Isco is ready to leave and is happy to come to Arsenal and Madrid are happy to let him go, but with Zinedine Zidane having only recently replaced Rafa Benitez at the Bernabeu things could change.
The report claims that it was the Frenchman who stepped in to stop the transfer being completed in the January window and the next few months might convince him that there is a place for the talented 23-year old in his La Liga side after all. Do you think this transfer will happen and if so, is it the right move for Arsenal?
