Isco thinks about it

Soccer has done justice to one of the best footballers in Spain. It already counts for Zidane and the man from Malaga values it a lot.


Football seems to do justice to one of the highest quality players in Spanish soccer. Isco (still 28 years old and the best of his career ahead), has won two consecutive starts against Atalanta and Real Sociedad, and has serious options to repeat in the derby. His problems with Zidane seem to have been left behind. The two protagonists, footballer and coach, have done a lot to make it so. Zidane, for placing himself in a position of inferiority giving him the title in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, the most important of the season that had been played to date. Isco, for his good performance and his dedication both in attack and defense. The midfielder has more than responded.

The latest events make Isco begin to seriously meditate on his future. The decision he made to want to leave Real Madrid next summer is still valid, but for him not everything is black and white. Not only does it begin to count in the coach's plans, but, on the other hand, it is still in the air that Zidane will follow next season. If the trend is confirmed and Isco has the same opportunities as the rest of his teammates, his decision, why not, may change. Also because the economic situation is not the best to look for a good contract. Not even Madrid could secure a profitable sale.

The one from Arroyo de la miel has a contract with Real Madrid until 2022. Despite having started in two of the three Champions League finals won by Real Madrid, his salary is not, by far, at the peak of the salary scale of the white workforce: Hazard and Bale with 15 million net. The information that transcends on the salary of Malaga places him in the range of 5 to 6 million euros. For Isco, undoubtedly, with a stable and consolidated family, there can be no better place to continue living than Madrid. Next summer he will enter his final year of contract. In two, he would be free and with a significant transfer bonus for his next destination.

Although a new horizon has opened for Isco in recent days, the reality is that all options remain open. Lopetegui's Sevilla remains firm in its intention to recruit him next summer and that is also a good solution for the player, who would be very close to his native Malaga. At the moment, Isco is only considering going step by step, because one of his objectives between now and the end of the season is to continue being important to have options to go to the Eurocup with Luis Enrique. The Malaga player already has 38 caps on his resume, in which he has scored 12 goals.

Isco has earned the right to decide about his future. He has an exceptional line-up in Italy, where he is seen as a player from the Pirlo court, midfielders to the liking of the tifossi who ensure possession and distribution of the game and who gain vision of the game over the years. From England they have also sounded their situation. If the trend regarding his prominence in Zidane's Madrid is confirmed, Isco's future may change. At least the situation would cause him to think about it.
