The continued drama between Isco and Solari is something that is still at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Numerous theories have flown around and nobody quite knows what the definitive issue is. The Spaniard performed extremely well against Melilla and then not so well in the following game. He saw limited minutes in the FIFA Club World Cup and is even clashing with the fans – as seen during the Roma game.

Many people are citing his battles with Ancelotti and Zidane as a reason not to be concerned about it. Fair call, he’s been at odds with managers before. However, this occasion seems to be a little different. We hadn’t seen things like Ramos doing a more emphatic celebration with him on the sidelines, seemingly sending a message to the manager. Whatever the drama going on behind the scenes – it seems to be beyond petty tabloid fantasy. There is certainly something more than what meets the eye but it isn’t clear what that is. However, I do believe he will be here longer than Solari. His talent is undeniable and another coach may see that, or at least we hope! Although he recently stated that he will not leave in January and that he is happy at the club, one would imagine if things remain as they are, something may happen.

In conclusion, I think he is unsettled but to what extent? Nobody but the players and the manager know. All us fans can do is hope for the best.
