Barcelona are ready to hit back at their rivals Real Madrid after making bid for their former star player Neymar, Don Balon reports.
The Catalan giants are ready to retaliate by bringing Isco to the Camp Nou if Neymar completes a move to the Bernabeu.
The Spain international was heavily linked with a move last year but he ended up signing a huge new deal with a £650million release clause.
However, Isco has endured a frustrating campaign with Zinedine Zidane as he has become a regular benchwarmer in Los Blancos squad.
Don Balon also said that Barcelona are hellbent on making Isco their long-term replacement for Andres Iniesta who could live for China at the end of the summer.
But Barca are supposedly aware that Real will never sell one of their best players to a direct rival.
Consequently, Barca will be hoping Isco makes the decision to leave this summer to somewhere else ,then they would jump at the offer for him.
On the other hand, Neymar has endured a fine season at Paris Saint Germain but already reportedly wants to leave for a new challenge elsewhere.

Real Madrid want Neymar despite his Barcelona past with the Brazilian on their transfer wishlist for the summer.
Neymar has seemingly used PSG as a stepping stone to a sensational move just 12 months down the line and Isco could be about to do the same.
Both sides are separated with 15 points in La Liga as Barca are on course for the ninth title in 14 seasons.
Real are also contenders for a third consecutive Champions League honours but will have to overcome last season's finalists, Juventus in the last eight.
Valverde's side were seemingly handed an easy quarter final pairing against Roma in the coming weeks.
