Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco did well to help his side beat Manchester United in the Super Cup on Tuesday but the Spaniard could have been representing the Red Devils.
Reports in ESPN claim that United were on the trail of Isco during his time at Malaga in 2013 and sent a Spanish scout who decided against signing the midfielder because his head was bigger than his body before he joined Real Madrid.
The scout’s final report on Isco read: “He’s good but not quite quick enough and his head is too big for his body.”
However, his supposed big-head did not stop him from starring in the Spanish under-21 team that same year.
This comes a year after Sir Alex Ferguson turned down the opportunity to sign Jordan Henderson because he thought the way the midfielder ran “might cause him problems later in life.”
The Spain international eventually moved to Real Madrid and starred last night as the reigning Champions League winners beat United 2-1 in the Super Cup.
