Beşiktaş considering Mauricio Isla on loan

Updated: June 20, 2015

Beşiktaş are looking for a new right back for the upcoming season and in that search have come across Chile international Mauricio Isla of Juventus. Negotiations have already begun between the two clubs.

Beşiktaş want to loan the 27-year old rightback and the first meetings with Juventus have reportedly gone positive. However, Fiorentina have also expressed interest in the player and they’re interested in an immediate permanent move for the player which may pose a problem for this transfer to be completed.

Last year the Chilean player was on loan at QPR in England, Juventus are again not considering him for the squad next season. That’s why Italian officials are positive about Beşiktaş’s offer. If an agreement is made, Isla could move to Istanbul for the upcoming season. Isla is currently at the 2015 Copa América in Chile with his national team and Beşiktaş officials have met with Isla’s manager and are awaiting their responce.

Isla started his career at Universidad Catolica before transferring to Udinese in 2007. With his successfull performance there he went to Italian giants Juventus for € 19 million. Two years later he was sent on loan to QPR and played in 27 matches, in which he made two assists. Isla has a remaining contract with Juventus until 2017 and he has worn Chile’s National team jersey 44 times already.
