Isco has made a decision on his future at Real Madrid after being linked with a move to the Premier League this summer
Isco’s ongoing stint at the Santiago Bernabeu has had its shares of ups and downs. However, the Spaniard was once an indispensable figure at the club under Zinedine Zidane in the 2016/17 season when Real Madrid won the La Liga along with their 12th Champions League title.
Isco has received interest from clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Paris Saint-Germain in the past but has not reciprocated to any of the offers. Last season, the Spaniard was able to make 23 appearances in La Liga despite playing second to fiddle to Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.
In the recent weeks, there were speculations regarding the player opting for an exit but the rumours have been put to bed as the midfielder has clearly stated that he is willing to fight for a spot in the present lineup. Presently the Spanish international has a contract with the Real which is valid till June 2021. There have been no talks yet of a potential renewal as of yet, however, with the French manager at the helm, it is most likely that Isco will continue at the Bernabeu.
Zidane has not hesitated in slotting the midfielder in his starting eleven as the Frenchman is aware of the qualities which can be offered by the playmaker. The Spaniard was brought on as a substitute against Real Betis at the Benito Villamarin Stadium and had an instant impact to help Los Blancos clinch three crucial points.
Presently, the 28-year-old has his set his sights on a spot with the Spanish national team. The 2021 Euro will definitely be a priority for the Madrid midfielder. The idea of shifting base is not in the mind of the Spaniard and therefore will continue his fight for a starting spot in the ongoing season. The recent injury to Toni Kroos might as well provide an opportunity to make his first start of the season.
