Tottenham make loan-to-buy bid for two-time Champions League winner - report
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham have made an offer to sign Real Madrid sensation Isco in a loan-to-buy deal, according to a report.
The Mirror have claimed on Tuesday that the north London side have made an audacious bid for the 24-year-old Spain international.
It is reported that Spurs want to sign Isco initially on a season-long loan but with an option to sign him permanently next summer, but Madrid only want to do a loan deal.
The Mirror report that Tottenham are finding Real difficult to deal with and are also eyeing alternative transfer options.
Madrid completed the signing of Isco in 2013 when he moved to the Bernabeu from Malaga for £25million to work under previous manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Isco has been a regular for Real Madrid playing 143 times for the Spanish giants in his three-year stay at the club.
However, he has found himself on the fringes of the first team in the new campaign and he has played just 17 minutes of the country giants opening two matches.
The midfielder has won a host of silverware while playing for the football giants, which includes two Champions Leagues, the Copa Del Rey, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
He has two years left on his current contract in Madrid and Spurs may be able to tempt Zinedine Zidane’s side to agree a fee for Isco with the midfielder’s price expected to drop next summer, as he enters the final year of his deal.
