Could Rangers move for Spanish superstar free agent once worth £100M?

If there’s another free agent out there with the level of ‘name’ that Isco has, we’d love to hear it. The Spanish superstar, currently looking for a new gig and once worth £100M, has found his reputation completely floundering, losing his way at Real Madrid then having a terrible spell with Sevilla who mutually terminated his deal. It didn’t go too well there.

But is this someone Rangers should look at at all?

His career stats are certainly solid, 10 goals and 12 assists in the Champions League in 78 appearances for a midfielder is a pretty good return, and 101 assists and goals in the league for Real in 331 outings is not at all bad either.

The 30-year-old is just desperate to get his career going again, and while Rangers certainly don’t lack for midfielders (or attacking midfielders) Isco coming to Ibrox would certainly be a bit of news!

We don’t know if we’re holding onto Malik Tillman, who may return to Germany, and after him we only actually have one, arguably two attacking mids we can rely on.

We have Cantwell, who is sterling, and Arfield, who is fringe. Hagi is still not anywhere near fit, and Lawrence is a mile from being there and out for the season.

Isco would be a massive name to get, a world class player who just needs the right club to go forward.

Of course, we’ve been here a year ago – Aaron Ramsey was another ‘world class’ attacking midfielder who had ‘lost his way’ and Rangers was ‘the right club’ for him to move forward.

It turned out to be one of the worst signings Rangers have ever made, so we’re well aware of what we’re suggesting here.

But just because one world class player turned into a total flop doesn’t mean another will, and there’s no logistical or financial reason Rangers can’t make a move for a player of this kind of quality.

We’re sure plenty of our ‘enlightened’ fans will mock this article but they would have mocked the same article about Ramsey before we signed him too, because he was well beyond us.

But sometimes these big signings do happen, and Isco is one prime to prove himself.

At Ibrox?

Probably not, but you never know.
