"He is a very good footballer, he has shown that and can always show that".

Questioned whether Barcelona tried to sign him, Isco confirmed then: "It is true that maybe there was some contact but I was clear".

That is because the Bernabeu boss has claimed that he wants Isco to spend the rest of his career at the club.

The Spaniard has proven over the course of the last two seasons that he has ability and maturity in abundance, as exemplified by some massively impressive displays for Zinedine Zidane's side. And things haven't changed this term, with it even emerging this week that Zidane blocked a deal for Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga last month as he didn't want to upset Keylor Navas.

This ratio also gives some idea of whether you're paying too much for what would be left if the company went bankrupt immediately. Twitter did report that its daily active user base grew by 12 percent, its fifth straight quarter of double-digit growth.

Isco still has a big reputation around Europe and the speculation linking him with a move away quickly emerged, with AS naming Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Juventus and Bayern Munich as five clubs who could try to battle for his services if Real put him up for sale. Every member of this squad is crucial.

"We have so many games and I'll have to call on all of them. Tomorrow (Saturday) is a very important league game, and we want to keep picking up points and get closer to the top of the table, without thinking about Wednesday when we know we have a huge game", Zidane added.

"I have full faith in my team".

Zidane also sees no reason to fear the upcoming European showdown against Ligue 1 leaders PSG. We know the reality we have. These are the kinds of games players love to be involved in'. Which means that the 25-year-old could be joining his family at Madrid and play at the Santiago Bernabeu only if Chelsea allow him to that option in his contract. Now, we have to be able to take advantage of the moment'.
