Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti downplays Isco transfer links

CARLO ANCELOTTI has denied allegations linking the club to Real Madrid’s involvement with Isco as stated by the Daily Star.

The Toffees are currently third in the Premier League standings after a fast, smooth start to their season, apart from their summer transfer deals.

Ancelotti retained the services of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan as well as the much awaited signing of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

Reports on the other hand claim that Ancelotti is keen on bringing one of his former players and it is believed to be in the form of Isco.

However, the Italian boss downplayed the reports and affirmed that his focus is currently on his charge’s fixture against Manchester United.

“Isco is a fantastic player and [I have] a fantastic memory of him but now I am not, honestly, focused there,” he said.

“I am focused on an important week we are going to have to recover players and to be well prepared for the game against United.”
