Rivaldo convinced Isco considering Real Madrid exit due to James Everton success


Barcelona great Rivaldo believes Isco will be considering his future at Real Madrid.

Rivaldo believes that Isco could take inspiration from James Rodriguez, who went from being a fringe player at Los Blancos to becoming Everton's star man, with three goals and four assists from his first six matches.

Isco, meanwhile, has had just 147 minutes under Zinedine Zidane across four appearances this term, failing to score or assist in 2020/21.

"Isco has had great days at the club and was an important member of the squad for a lot of time, but it's not happening for him at the Bernabeu any longer, so he might look to James Rodriguez's situation as a good example of how to successfully move on," Rivaldo wrote in his Betfair column this week.

"The Colombian attacker is shooting the lights out in England with Everton and I wouldn't be surprised if Isco decided to make a similar move in the near future.

"Isco is watching James and knows he's very happy with his decision of leaving Real Madrid for a club where he had the chance to be a regular starter and finally get back to his best form.

"Isco may consider something similar if he keeps being overlooked by Zidane."
