Isco Makes Final Decision on Real Madrid Future Following Zinedine Zidane’s Return

?Real Madrid midfielder Isco is now set to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer following the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager. 

Isco, 26, has endured a frustrating season for Los Blancos, with the Spaniard appearing close to procuring a move away from the Spanish capital after falling out of favour with then manager Santiago Solari – who replaced Julen Lopetegui in mid-November.


With Solari making way for Zidane’s return in March, it seems his arrival has changed the midfielder’s mind regarding a summer departure, according to ?Marca, who have claimed that he’s now set to stay at the Bernabeu ahead of next season rather than search for a move.

The Spaniard – who is currently contracted to ?Real Madrid until 2022, and boasts a €700m release clause – was a favourite under Zidane, with Isco starting two of the three Champions League final successes the Frenchman oversaw during his previous tenure. He played in both the 4-1 win against Juventus in Cardiff in 2017 and the 3-1 win against Liverpool in Kiev.

This season under Zidane has seen ?Isco recapture some of his best form, with him scoring in wins against Celta Vigo and SD Huesca – which in fact trebled his tally for the season to six – and made a substitute appearance in the recent 2-1 defeat to Valencia. 

It’s been a poor season for Real Madrid, which is set to end without winning a single trophy after embarrassing eliminations from the Copa del Rey to Barcelona and the Champions League to Ajax, while ?La Liga is likely to be won by Barca for a fourth time in five seasons.
