Manchester City target £30m Malaga hitman Isco after tip from Begiristain

Manchester City’s newly appointed director of football Txiki Begiristain has identified Malaga striker Isco as the club’s No 1 target in January.

Begiristain joined City this week as a technical director in a move which will spell re-organisation behind the scenes at Eastlands.

The 48-year-old is ready to team up with his friend, City chief executive and former Barcelona vice-president, Ferran Soriano and has already identified Isco, 20, as a main priority.

Isco has impressed in La Liga but still has four years to run on his contract at Malaga with a £17million buyout clause.

The club are trying to tie him down to a new deal which would increase the buy-out clause to £30m, still well withing  City’s reach, according to reports in The Sun.

The Malaga striker made his Champions League debut against Zenit St Petersburg this season and scored two goals and has bagged four in all competitions in his 12 appearances this term.
