Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes discuss the implications of Isco's new deal on Gareth Bale's future at Real Madrid. Today's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms the Spaniard has signed a contract extension which will be announced later today.
Isco's release clause is the second highest clause in football at the moment.
The 25-year-old playmaker has been a key player for Madrid over the last couple of seasons.
Barcelona have emerged from a cloud of pessimism to make a flawless start to their La Liga campaign and travel to Getafe on Saturday looking to stretch their advantage over Real Madrid, whose early optimism has been dampened.
Bale has been accused of playing below par since returning from injury at the tail end of last season, while AS reports that some in the crowd yelled "speak Spanish".
"It's been a good few years", he told a press conference on Friday.
Instead of leaving the club, Isco recently signed a new long-term deal with the club until 2022. "I will never forget it". My intention was to be a success here with the team that took a chance on me. "The target now is to continue improving, consolidating as a starter and winning many more titles".
"Never [could I move to Barcelona], as I've always said, my idea was to succeed in Madrid".
A number of teams, including Barcelona and Bayern Munich, were linked with a move for the Spain global as he entered the final year of his deal. Everyone wants to play for Real Madrid and I'm lucky to do it with the best in the world. "It's the biggest club in the history of the game".
