After the renewal of Marcelo’s contract, Real Madrid have announced the deal with Isco in their website, who will be linked with the club until the 30th June 2022. These are great news for Real Madrid fans because Isco is currently one of the best players in Europe.
Isco had some doubts about renewing his contract, but he finally agreed a deal in April. His current contract expires in 2018, so he would have been free for negotiating with another club from the 1st of January. Now, his release clause has been set in €700M, so there is no club who can dare to sign him, including Manchester City or PSG.
The player spoke today in press conference and he admitted that FC Barcelona tried to sign him: “There were some contacts, but I didn’t listen to them. My intention was to triumph here and the team back me. I want to be in the line-up and win many titles, something very likely with our team”.
However, Isco said that he would have never gone to Barcelona: “Never, as I’ve always said, my idea was to triumph at Real Madrid. It’s true that I’ve been through bad moments but this makes you enjoy the good ones. I don’t regret anything”, Isco said.
The player also analyzed his time at Real Madrid: “I’m very happy and proud of keeping representing the best team in the world. Eleven titles in four years is great. I didn’t expect this, we’ve earned it and the team always wants more. It’s true that I’ve grown up as a footballer, I’ve improved and I have more goal because I Play closer to the goal. Zidane has been important in that. I’ve been patient, waiting when I didn’t have opportunities. I’ve always known that I wanted to triumph at Real Madrid”.
