Isco: Spain teammates telling me to join Real Madrid


Daniel Carvajal, Alvaro Morata and Nacho are urging Malaga playmaker Isco to sign for Real Madrid, the youngster has said.

Speaking after his national side’s 3-0 over Norway in the semi-final of the European Under-21 Championship, Isco said the Los Blancos trio have been telling him to join them at the Santiago Bernabeu.

But the 20-year-old, who scored a spectacular goal to help his team through to the final, said his focus was with his national side and he refused to be drawn too much into transfer speculation.

He told reporters: “Those [Morata, Nacho and Carvajal] indeed are the guys insisting [for the move to Real Madrid]. We’ll see what happens.”

Isco also took time out to praise his teammates after the defending champions cruised through to another European Under 21 Championship final.

He stated: “We have earned it all on the field. Now follows the most important and beautiful thing, the final. I will not talk about myself only, but also the group, which is what makes us great.”
