Barcelona have reportedly reached an agreement with Real Madrid midfielder, Isco over a potential transfer in the summer with Spanish publication, El Chiringuito claiming that the player has agreed in principle to move to the Nou Camp in principle.

Isco has fallen out of favour under Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti and has struggled for game time his season as seen by the meager nine appearances he has made in LaLiga so far. With the Spaniard's contract expiring at the end of the season, it is understood that Barcelona president, Joan Laporta is keen to sign free agents due to their precarious financial situation and that the midfielder fits the bill in terms of the kind of players they are looking for.

The Spaniard can operate on the wings but is at his best in central midfield, playing just behind the striker, would become the first player to make the move between the two rivals since 2007, with Javier Saviola being the last to cross over.

The 29-year-old who was considered as one of the best midfielders in the world before his career nosedived, has made 346 appearances for the Los Blancos, helping them win two LaLiga titles, one Copa del Rey and four Champions League honours.
