Zinedine Zidane extends his contract with Real Madrid for another three years


"A contract could be 10 years, or 20, but I know where I am and what I must do".

What do you make of Isco's new deal?

Their unrivalled strength in depth was one of the crucial factors in picking up a first title in five years last season as coach Zinedine Zidane heavily rotated his side against lesser opposition.

Spanish federation rules at that time stated that players must serve a suspension in the competition in which the offence was committed, although since March 2015 bans picked up in the Super Cup have been served in subsequent La Liga games.

Isco tried to play down concerns of the Real Madrid fans earlier this week after he was named man of the match in the 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the Uefa Super Cup on 8 August, insisting that he will sign a new deal sooner rather than later.

By continuing to win as a manager, Zidane has further cemented his place in the club's history. "I'm happy for working so well with my staff".

Zidane also warned the European champions against a Barcelona backlash at the Camp Nou on Sunday (kick off 2000GMT).

Furthermore, Real Madrid's arch-rivals Barcelona now have fresh money to spend after netting €222m from Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona is available in most nations through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

Barcelona's summer has centered around the loss of Neymar and the club's attempts in the past fortnight to replace him.

"We know there is so much talent in our squad and with hard work we can keep achieving more things", said the former world player of the year after the Super Cup triumph.

It was not too long ago that Isco was considered a luxury player at Real Madrid. "If we think it is going to be easier tomorrow we will be mistaken".
