Real Madrid forward Isco says he will stay at the club for two more years, after regaining his place in the team following injuries to Toni Kroos and Casemiro.
It seems like the saga of Isco’s future has more twists, with the player now saying he would be happy to sign a contract, after having started 3 games in a row before Saturday’s league match against Sporting Gijon.
With Marco Asensio gaining favour at the Santiago Bernabeu, it looked like Isco would not fulfill his potential at the club, and would look to move to some other team so as to get more playing time.

However, injuries to Toni Kroos and Casemiro meant manager Zinedine Zidane put his faith in him, giving him the chance to start in 3 games. He also came on as a substitute in Saturday’s win over Sporting Gijon.
And now, Isco has come out and confirmed that he would stay at the club for the next two years, and would be willing to sign a new contract, especially since the club and him are seemingly on the same page.
“I will stay this year and the next,” he said. “We [Real Madrid and I] are both keen — we hope it can be sorted.”
This would come as a blow to Premier League clubs Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, who were chasing the Real Madrid ace to add to their own squads. While Spurs still have Kane and Janssen to provide them with the goal, United could very well the use the services of a player who was once awarded the Golden Boy award for his talent, especially since they seem to be struggling to score in the league.
