Isco will stay on at Real Madrid, but as a substitute
According to 'La Sexta', Zinedine Zidane has decided to count on Isco for next season, but has not guaranteed he will start, but the man from Malaga will earn himself a place in Real Madrid's starting eleven by starting on the bench.
The cited media outlet says that Isco has accepted this and will continue at the Bernabeu at least for next season. They are still confident he will shine once again as he did before having surgery to treat appendicitis.
Since he came back to Real Madrid, Zidane has defended Isco, who was completely disregarded by Solari. Despite a horrible season in which he has been out of form and short of game time, the French coach has kept faith in the talented 27 year-old midfielder.
Although it is true that Isco has never been a nailed on starter for Real Madrid, under Julen Lopetegui he was a key member of the team until he suffered appendicitis and then he was left out by Solari, who came from coaching the B team.
Although there were times when Isco was a substitute under Zidane when the 'BBC' were on top form, Isco came on in the second half of the final in Milan and he started in Cardiff and Kiev.
Despite his terrible season putting him on the way out, Real Madrid were clear that he would not leave at any price. The French daily 'Le Parisien' said there was a huge offer of 210 million euros for Isco, Kroos and Bale which was not even contemplated.
