Chelsea FC star replies to Real Madrid transfer speculation

"The victory can give us a lot", he added.

Isco proved his worth for his country with his first senior treble, but playing for his club leaves the 25-year-old frustrated.

He feels that he does not have the confidence or backing of Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane. "Nor the feeling that comes from having him, nor his performance with us".

Isco is a phenomenal talent yet he regularly struggles for game time under Zidane; indeed, he's only started 18 of a possible 29 La Liga games this season.

After scoring a hat trick for the Spanish national team in their 6-1 win against Argentina in Madrid on Tuesday, Real Madrid star Isco didn't hold back about his lack of minutes for his club team.

In his own post-match interview, Isco explained how all he wants to do is impress Zidane but that he can never seem to win the Frenchman's confidence.

The Express are also quoting reports from Spain as saying that Madrid are prepared to sell Bale for £87.5m this summer so a move to United looks to be on the cards.

Before Julen Lopetegui took over as national team coach, Isco had only found the net once (against Belarus) and hadn't even chalked one single assist. Here I have the confidence of the coach. "I want to show I'm a good player".

"Maybe I'm the problem in Madrid". At Madrid I don't have the kind of confidence which every footballer needs.

However, Bale's future at the Bernabeu has been called in to question this season as a series of niggling injuries have hampered his progress and reports suggest Madrid are growing exhausted of the amount of time he spends on the sidelines. Clearly there's been a complete breakdown in communication between the two.

Asked to comment on Isco's remarks, though, Lopetegui simply stressed the importance of his players being happy.
