Isco: My new deal very close

Isco has confirmed his new contract at Real Madrid is ‘very close’ and he expects ‘it will be done soon’ after Tuesday’s Super Cup win.

The 25-year-old starred in Madrid’s success in Skopje against Manchester United and netted the second goal, once again proving his worth to Zinedine Zidane’s side.

“We're very close and it will be done soon,” Isco is quoted as saying by ESPN.

“The game overall was good, we were superior. We suffered a bit at the end against a powerful team.

“They have great players and they started very well. They're a powerful side with big aspirations. But in general, we played a very complete game and we're deserving winners.

“We think of the present and the future. We don't usually fail on the big occasion. It's also because of the dressing room: getting along is much easier.

“We're building a winning group and we're showing that.”
