Isco signs new Real Madrid contract

Isco added: "Everyone wants to be a Real Madrid player".

A youth product of Valencia, he joined Malaga in 2011 and made a huge impact in his two seasons at the club, helping the Andalusian outfit reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League in the 2012-13 campaign.

Isco has been an ever present in Madrid's team this season, playing in all three Liga games and their 3-0 win over APOEL in the Champions League on Wednesday. "I want to consolidate my place in the team and win a lot of trophies". The game against defending champion Real Madrid on Sunday gives the Basque club the ideal chance to prove its worth. "It's true that I've had bad times but it makes you taste the good ones better, I do not regret anything", Isco said.

"The important thing is whether Gareth is happy or not". He entered the final 18 months of his contract at odds with manager Zinedine Zidane, who openly questioned his commitment and desire to be with the club.

"Our first goal is to enjoy every minute as much as possible", Real Sociedad coach Eusebio Sacristan said. I never heard anything. He's not sharp and doesn't like the booing, but he'll have to get used to it because that's the Real Madrid fans, they're very demanding.

Isco had been linked with a transfer away from Real for years, as he failed to establish himself as a regular starter in the star-studded side.

"The World Cup is an enormous challenge for us", the Cardiff born player said.

"Firstly, he got injured in November previous year and has not fully recovered his best form yet as it takes a while, and also because he tried to come back too early. We will fight until the end to qualify".
