There is no doubt Isco is a seriously talented player and someone who would flourish under Pep. But my only concern is for the likes of Foden who this signing would be to his detriment. The other aspect of course is how many more miles on the clock does Merlin have left on the clock? There's a massive pair of boots to fill when he hangs them up. Maybe this is Pep seeing things that we didn't just like he did when he dodged the Sanchez bullet?
