Isco wants Real Madrid to sign the young Brazilian
The Gremio star is expected to join Barcelona in January, and has already been pictured in a Barca shirt.
But Real Madrid are keen to move in and want to beat their rivals to his signature.
The Brazilian club are believed to be furious with Barcelona’s dealings – including the picture.
And some sources claim Madrid could benefit from the animosity.
And Diario Gol claim Isco is urging Perez to make a move.
The midfielder believes he could be a key player and Real should get in ahead of Barcelona.
The 21-year-old would fit the bill in Madrid’s recent transfer strategy of signing young players for the future.
Perez snapped up Vinicius Jnr in the summer and prioritised youngsters over first team signings.
However he is paying for that now with Madrid down in fourth place and finishing second in the Champions League group stage.
They face a massive task to retain the La Liga and Champions League crowns and need a huge overhaul.
