Magic Isco Has Turned Real Madrid Career Around

Magic Isco Has Turned Real Madrid Career Around

Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool have made bids to try and lure Marco Asensio away from Real Madrid this summer, according to a report in the Daily Star.

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.

I'm very happy to have the confidence Real Madrid shows in me.

The range of talent in Real's squad explains why their recent transfer activities have been geared towards building for the future rather than the immediate present, bringing in 19-year-old full back Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid and Spain under-21 midfielder Dani Ceballos.

Madrid, as champions of La Liga last season, play the second fixture at home against Copa del Rey winners Barcelona, who will be featuring in their first competitive match under new coach Ernesto Valverde.

Ronaldo enjoyed a longer vacation than his Real Madrid teammates to fully recover from Portugal's participation in the Confederations Cup in June.


Zidane also warned the European champions against a Barcelona backlash at Camp Nou on Sunday.

Neymar completed his world-record €222million move to Paris Saint-Germain last week and is set to make his Ligue 1 debut this weekend.

"They have had changes". I know where I am and what to do.

"We've had a good pre-season and we are coming into the game in good condition", said Valverde.

The French boss and president Florentino Perez are understood to be desperate to keep hold of Asensio as they see him as the long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo but it remains to be seen whether the player can be convinced to stay. "If we think it is going to be easier tomorrow we will be mistaken".

"But on Sunday the real thing starts, with a competitive game and a title at stake against our biggest rivals".
