Isco has signed new contract — Real Madrid

Isco has signed new contract — Real Madrid

Real are to mark Isco's new contract in an official ceremony at the Bernabéu after the Spanish Super Cup, in which Los Blancos face Barcelona on 13 and 16 August. I know where I am and what to do.

Real Madrid quickly reacted by offering him a new deal and the player suggested that the signing was now only a formality.

"Maybe in a year's time, I might be gone".

"I'm very happy to have the confidence Real Madrid shows in me". And the objectives are always the same: trying to win every single game and every single title.

Brazilian Casemiro, for example, has developed from a holding midfielder primarily picked to shackle the opposition into a box-to-box player with a knack for scoring in big games, striking in the Super Cup and Champions League final as well as against Barcelona, Napoli and Athletic Bilbao. The staff are doing a great job, we do not fail because of the relationship in the dressing room.

Barcelona are considering a move for Marco Asensio if they can not sign Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele this summer - but the Real Madrid starlet has a £72million release clause.

Furthermore, Real Madrid's arch-rivals Barcelona now have fresh money to spend after netting €222m from Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain.

It is no secret that Barcelona's primary target to replace PSG-bound Neymar is Coutinho, but Liverpool released a statement on Friday insisting he will not be sold.

"If we think it will be easier [to face Barcelona without Neymar], we are mistaken". "He worked very hard physically during his break and he is ready to play now".

Zidane admitted "there aren't many players" with Neymar's individual qualities, but claimed his absence wouldn't give Madrid the upper hand over two El Clasico clashes in four days with the second leg of the Super cup to come at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.
