Guillem Balague offers hope to Liverpool in Isco pursuit

Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski has emphatically denied talk of a move to Real Madrid

Some reports in Spain have claimed Isco wants to leave, but Zidane said: "What has been said is not true".

And according to reports the Frenchman certainly has his eyes on one man to shoulder some of the blame for the poor season as he's apparently chose to sell one of his stars.

Nine goals in 17 La Liga games so far this season has Ronaldo now on course for his lowest goalscoring return since he joined Madrid in 2009.

Zidane has no new injury issues ahead of Saturday's game against Real Sociedad, with his starting XI likely to again include Gareth Bale after the Wales winger's newfound popularity around the Bernabeu saw him voted by fans as the club's player of the month for January.

However, things could get better for the Spaniard as this has lead to rumors about Liverpool being very keen on bringing in Isco to replace their departed Philippe Coutinho.

The former France global explained that he felt the Portuguese superstar was actually more motivated than he usually is in a bid to try and haul Real out of their current malaise.

"He has always proven himself and turned up in the big matches".

"No. It was planned to change him, and that's all", he continued.

"We must try and be more consistent". We got to 2-1, but in the end, two mistakes cost us the two goals. This year we have not gone on a run of seven, eight, 10 games in a row. We can not put three or four results together.

"It's good you ask me about that. We were in control of the game, above all the first half, so not happy, of course". While it is surprising to hear that, especially after the news comes less than a year after Zidane proclaimed that Isco is a key star in the Real Madrid squad, football is a fickle mistress and this shows it.

Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri has also been linked with a move to both PSG and Real after helped the Italian side to top of Serie A.

Real Madrid will look to return to winning ways in La Liga on Saturday after a disappointing draw at Levante in their last league game.
