Malaga owner hints at Isco’s return

Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani has stoked the flames of recent speculation linking the Real Madrid midfielder with a return by claiming he is sure a reunion will happen.

Malaga president Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani has hinted that Isco could return to the club.

The midfielder has heavily been linked with a move away from Real Madrid after finding first-team opportunities limited at Santiago Bernabeu, with Malaga and Tottenham interested.

Isco enjoyed a fruitful two years at Malaga before joining Madrid in 2013, and now the club’s president has stoked the flames of a possible return.

Mauricio Pochettino was reported in Spanish publication AS on Tuesday to have contacted Isco with a view to convincing him to move to White Hart Lane on loan.

However, a return to Malaga is claimed to be more likely as the Spain international looks to reignite his career
