Isco pens four-year Real Madrid contract extension

Isco pens four-year Real Madrid contract extension

According to an official statement from the club, Real Madrid has extended Isco Alarcon's contract. Today's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport confirms the Spaniard has signed a contract extension which will be announced later today.

Gareth Bale is jeered by Real Madrid supporters while attending a sponsorship event in the Spanish capital.

It has emerged that Isco was a target of Barcelona's this summer.

Barca, fresh from Tuesday's emphatic 3-0 Champions League victory over Juventus, will have the chance provisionally to move seven points clear of Real and Atletico Madrid and coach Ernesto Valverde has indicated he will give game time to fringe players.

Mundo Deportivo suggested the shocking move was possible amid suggestions that Isco was a Barcelona fan before moving to Real in 2013 - and eventually has a pet dog named after Lionel Messi.

The Spanish worldwide managed to turn around his situation at Real during the second part of last season and in August AS reported that the player had made a decision to agree a new long-term deal worth €6m-a-year (£5.5m, £7.2m) and with a €700m release clause.

"I was determined to sign it at the beginning of the season". I never heard anything.

"The truth is that I never thought about leaving".

Now it wants to keep its impressive run going and show it can repeat its successful campaign from more than three decades ago, when it won the second of its two Spanish titles. I am very happy and very proud to present the best team in the world. Real Sociedad and Barcelona are the only two teams with three straight wins to start the league. "It's the biggest club in the history of the game".
