Real Madrid playmaker linked to Man City reveals his intentions

Real Madrid playmaker Isco has insisted that he has no intentions of leaving the Bernabeu and is planning to stay with the Spanish heavyweights for at least two more seasons.

The former Malaga attacking midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Los Merengues in recent weeks, with the Mirror reporting earlier this month that Manchester City and Juventus were prepared to go head to head for the 23-year-old’s signature.

The tabloid noted that the Sky Blues had recently made contact with the player, but that they face considerable competition from Italian champions Juventus.

However, both clubs are set to be disappointed at the campaign’s end, with the attacker confirming that he was not looking to leave Real.

“I am very happy, and I am very happy at Real Madrid,” Isco told Spanish radio station Cadena Cope.

“My intention is to stay at Real Madrid for the two years I have left.”

Isco began his career with Valencia, but truly caught the attention under current City coach Manuel Pellegrini at Malaga when he begun to demonstrate his class in La Liga.

Things haven’t been easy for the technical master at Real since he moved to the Spanish capital in 2013. He hasn’t always claimed a starting spot—with competition from the likes of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez intense—and it remains to be seen what role he has in Zinedine Zidane’s plans moving forward.
