Zidane happy to sign new Real Madrid contract

Alongside last season's league and cup double, and the 2016 Champions League triumph, Zidane has led Real's first-team squad to silverware success in the UEFA Super Cup twice and the FIFA Club World Cup last summer. But the contract doesn't mean anything.

Isco, according to the report, has already signed the new contract which is worth €6m-a-year.

Isco was impressive against Manchester United in the Super Cup, after which it emerged Sir Alex Ferguson had turned down signing him because his head was too big.

"Real Madrid see Isco as a key player", said AS's source, who also revealed: "In addition to Isco's contract renewal, there'll be more, highly positive Real news in the coming days".

He was one of the stars of the show as Real then beat Manchester United in the UEFA Super Cup this week to kick off the new season with an early trophy. A formal announcement is expected next week after the Spanish Super Cup.

By continuing to win as a manager, Zidane has further cemented his place in the club's history.

"We are always in high spirits but now, at such a good moment, we enjoy it to the fullest".

The Spanish publication points out that Barcelona, City and Bayern have made enquiries about Isco's availability in recent times but the player is ready to snub them to commit his future to Real Madrid with a new five-year deal.

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

"Barcelona are Barcelona, we know how they play and their idea of playing will not change".

Barcelona played its first match without Neymar on Monday in a friendly against Brazilian side Chapecoense.

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.

With Neymar gone, Barcelona will look to Lionel Messi to repeat his outstanding performance from the last competitive "clasico" played against Madrid in April.
