Isco Admits Contact with Barcelona, Denies Listening to Offers

Isco Admits Contact with Barcelona, Denies Listening to Offers

Real Madrid says it has extended the contract of Francisco "Isco" Alarcon until the end of the 2022 season, keeping the talented attacking midfielder tied to the club for another four seasons.

Today, Isco is regarded again as one of the strongest footballers of Spanish football and his new Real Madrid contract confirms that the Merengues do not want to do without him.

Isco's previous deal was set to expire in the summer of 2018 so reports suggested that Real were also ready to negotiate his departure in order to avoid losing him for free.

Real had a 3-0 Champions League victory over APOEL Nicosia.

Isco added: "Everyone wants to be a Real Madrid player".

The 25-year-old's future with the Champions League holders was under question during the last two summer transfer windows after the Spaniard saw his playing time restricted by Zinedine Zidane. Atletico Madrid won the match 2-1, but Real Madrid's aggregate lead and away goal advanced them.

Emergency Management and the American Red Cross and county emergency managers also opened shelters in the following locations. The hurricane is expected to make a slow, ruinous march up the state's west coast, hitting the heavily populated Tampa-St.

Isco was sensational for Los Blancos last season and made the most when stepping into the team following Gareth Bale's injury to prove his place is in the starting XI.

Three wins from three has put them top of the table and with a four-point advantage over rivals Real, who have stumbled with two draws in their last two games in the absence of the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo.

Isco had already proven his talent before his arrival to the Bernabeu stadium.

A home victory over Madrid would extend Real Sociedad's ideal record and keep it at the top of the league standings after four matches.

He has also been in fine form for Spain, scoring three goals in recent wins over Italy and Liechtenstein.
