"Barcelona is not weak - just the opposite", he told a news conference. I know where I am and what to do.

The start of another new season will bring a fresh challenge for Isco as he looks to nail down a regular spot in the Real Madrid XI.

"Maybe in a year's time, I might be gone".

Isco again proved his worth to Madrid on Tuesday night by netting the key second goal in his side's 2-1 win over Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup, building on his impressive end to the 2016-17 campaign.

Liverpool have been linked with two wingers to add to their squad this summer, with Diario Gol claiming an offer has been submitted for Real Madrid's Marco Asensio, while Transfermarketweb reports Diego Laxalt of Genoa is also a target.

Since joining Real Madrid, Isco has won three Champions League titles and La Liga once, the Super Cup three times and the Club World Cup twice as well as one Copa del Rey.

This measure, imposed by a judge of Competitions of Spanish Football Federation, remains in force because Real Madrid had not disputed another Spanish Super Cup ever since. I'm happy to be working so well with my staff. "We are enjoying a lot our job".

Barcelona are considering a move for Marco Asensio if they can not sign Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele this summer - but the Real Madrid starlet has a £72million release clause.

Barcelona's new manager Ernesto Valverde is said to be a big fan of the young Spaniard, and wants the club to try to lure him away from their rivals.

It was not too long ago that Isco was considered a luxury player at Real Madrid.

Valverde will be desperate to get off to the ideal start with Barcelona and take an advantage going into the second leg at the Bernabeu on Wednesday، August 16. "We know how they play and their idea of how to play isn't going to change", Zidane.
