Zidane called on Isco to sign a new contract with Real Madrid
Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has called on Isco to sign a new contract with the club, following his fine display against Alaves on Sunday.
Isco’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu is uncertain, with reports claiming he could make a shock move to Barcelona, when his deal expires in 2018.
Talks over a new contract are on held, while the 24-year-old has insisted he wants to play more regularly.
Isco made his 14th La Liga against Alaves, where he scored the second goal. It was his fifth strike in his last six league starts.
Zidane was asked if he wants Isco to sign a new deal after the match and he replied: “Of course I want him to renew because he is a Real Madrid player and an important player for our team.
“The only thing he wants is to be here and play here. I’m delighted for the game he had.
“He did well playing between the lines, he made the rest of the team play, he put in a very complete performance.”
