Roma Offered Isco by Agent, Track Wolverhampton Star

Jorge Mendes proposed Isco to Roma, which are in the hunt for midfielders. He will be available on a free transfer this summer as his contract runs out. The Giallorossi have concluded several deals with the powerful agent in the recent past, who also represents José Mourinho.

The 30-year-old was making €7M per year with Los Blancos. It is €1M more than the highest-paid players in the Serie A side’s roster. He could become a serious option if they lost Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Sportitalia reports. They have not relinquished all hope on such front.

According to Il Romanista, their brass tried to convince the veteran yesterday. They suggested that he would be a backup at Inter. Instead, he would remain a regular if he stayed. The two clubs offered the same wages. The Nerazzurri in a two-year contract, the Giallorossi in a seasonal one with an option.

Besides Isco, Roma have on Ruben Neves, another client of Mendes, on their radar, Corriere dello Sport relays. The 25-year-old fully blossomed at Wolverhampton, drawing the attention of the Premier League giants. Mourinho likes the player, but it would take a major investment to purchase him.

Our Take on Roma Eyeing Isco and Ruben Neves

The Giallorossi need to overhaul the position since Sergio Olivera and Jordan Veretout are on shaky ground too. The plethora of names linked to Roma in the last few days suggests they have not zeroed in on anybody. Isco and Ruben Neves would be strong options, but those deals present big challenges on paper.
