Real Madrid star Isco has quelled rumours surrounding his Santiago Bernabeu future, by insisting that he feels 'valued' by the club.
It had previously been reported that the Spanish international was unhappy with his role in the Real Madrid squad (quotes via The Sun):
Isco was involved in more goals (14) than any other Real Madrid midfielder in La Liga this season (7 goals and 7 assists). [Opta] pic.twitter.com/QFvTae7p8h— El Madridismo (@ElMadridismo93) May 21, 2018
“I have the confidence of my coach here with Spain. I still have the desire to keep working, to improve, to be a starter with my club.
"My words were taken out of context, so I did not talk to the press anymore.
"I feel very important and valued in Madrid. In the end all the rumours that Isco is leaving and he is not happy are a lie."
Isco: "Physically I feel alright. I was got a shoulder injury and had to deal with it for three weeks, but I worked well and came back as best I could. This team is historic, there are no limits and I hope we continue to keep bringing joy to the fans." pic.twitter.com/50w0iGdHlP— M•A•J (@Ultra_Suristic) May 22, 2018
"Playing so many finals is unthinkable and it's because of the work we do every season. When I arrived at Madrid I thought that I would play a Champions League final but it has been four in five years.
"I don't settle for anything or look at what I've won before, because it would make me a worse player. It would be a dream to win my fourth Champions League."
