Magic Isco Has Turned Real Madrid Career Around

The Spanish Super Cup has a special value, and even more against Barcelona.

Isco is happy with the winning mentality in the Real Madrid dressing room and is hopeful of soon extending his contract, which now has less than 12 months to run.

"I'm happy because it's a sign of confidence, that we have done good work", Zidane told a pre-match press conference ahead of Real's Spanish Super Cup showdown with Barcelona when quizzed on reports over his future.

The 25-year-old actually signed the deal in July, before heading to the U.S. for Real's pre-season tour, but it was agreed not to make the extension public until this month.

Will he start the Spanish domestic season as he ended the last? Victories over Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Malaga saw Los Blancos take the La Liga title away from Barcelona, before a 4-1 win over Juventus made it back-to-back Champions League crowns.

"For me he is one of the most important businessmen in this country, I am sure he has many reasons to say that". Till then, they will play all their designated home matches at Wembley Stadium this season.

"What we want to do is to keep this winning streak alive", Zidane said after Madrid beat United.

Barcelona, which is in the Super Cup as the reigning Copa del Rey victor, will play its second match since the stunning departure of Neymar after Paris Saint-Germain paid a record 222 million euros ($262 million) to trigger the release clause in his contract.

Centre back Jesus Vallejo is injured and will miss the Clasico, along with Croatian global Luka Modric for the first leg due to a suspension dating back to Madrid's last appearance in 2014.

Zinedine Zidane's side are clearly wary having seen Neymar leave Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain after the French club met the Brazilian's £198m clause.

It was not too long ago that Isco was considered a luxury player at Real Madrid. The comeback was on for Atletico after Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann had cut the aggregate score to 3-2 inside 16 minutes, but Isco killed the last-four tie with a fine goal three minutes before the break. The former Barcelona player will now coach his first competitive match for the club against its fiercest rival. "It's an important title and I think that we are prepared".
