Andres Iniesta has heaped praise on Real Madrid midfielder and his international teammate Isco, labelling him ‘an incredible footballer’.
The 24-year-old former Malaga star has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu this summer with some reports even suggesting he could let his contract expire next year and join Barcelona in a sensational free transfer.
"Isco is an incredible footballer and plays for one of the best teams in the world," Iniesta said in his press conference ahead of Friday's World Cup Qualifier against Israel.
"I have spoken about him a lot of times – the quality he has and how important he is to his side.”
The Barca midfield maestro was then asked on his current situation regarding fitness and injuries.
"It has been a very difficult season thus far, because of muscular injuries, it hasn't gone as I had planned,” Iniesta replied.
"Now I'm back to feeling good and happy, so hopefully there aren't any more setbacks.
"I am ready to help the national team with the important matches we have ahead."
