Real Madrid: Isco has signed new contract

Alexandre Lacazette

The Spanish Super Cup has a special value, and even more against Barcelona.

Who do you think will win La Liga this season?

Real Madrid star Isco has reportedly already put pen to paper on a new contract that includes a whopping release clause.

The Spanish publication points out that Barcelona, City and Bayern have made enquiries about Isco's availability in recent times but the player is ready to snub them to commit his future to Real Madrid with a new five-year deal.

Real Madrid had some poor results and performances in pre-season, but improved dramatically when defeating Manchester United 2-1 in the European Supercup on Tuesday night.

Zidane has been rewarded for the outstanding job he's done with Los Blancos since taking up the reins in January 2016, and sources close to the La Liga giants told AS that Real were now waiting for the right time to make the announcement official.

Something changed in the final months of the season, however, with Bale's injury problems handing Isco the chance to become a regular in the Real Madrid team.

Let us know via Twitter and Facebook.

Barcelona host rivals Real Madrid in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday (2000GMT) badly in need of a morale-boosting win following the world record sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain.

The start of another new season will bring a fresh challenge for Isco as he looks to nail down a regular spot in the Real Madrid XI.

Purists at Barcelona hope the virtuoso Brazilian's departure will lead to new coach Ernesto Valverde building a more balanced side and reverting to the possession-based style of play perfected under former coach Pep Guardiola to try and wrestle the title back from Madrid.

The French boss and president Florentino Perez are understood to be desperate to keep hold of Asensio as they see him as the long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo but it remains to be seen whether the player can be convinced to stay.
