One of the characteristics of an ideal gas is that there is no interaction between gas molecules. This means the molecules will not have any potential energy so the only contributor to the change in internal energy would be its kinetic energy due to its absolute temperature. Since it is isothermal, T=0 so neither kinetic nor potential energy would contribute to the change in internal energy so deltaU=0.
