Manchester City are showing an interest in Real Madrid playmaker ISCO, according to the Sun, and are lining up a £30million bid in the summer to deter transfer rivals Chelsea and Juventus.

Sunderland are expecting City boss Pep Guardiola to also launch a bid to bring 22-year-old goalkeeper JORDAN PICKFORD to the Etihad Stadium, reports ESPN.
