After Malaga's Isco was triumphant with Spain in the Under-21 European Championship, El Loco feels that it's best if he continues to play in the La Liga with Real Madrid
So where will Spanish and Malaga star attacking midfielder Isco play next season?
Malaga may well be out of the question as Isco, also known as Francisco Roman Alarcon Suarez, is a wanted man.
He also knows that this is the best chance for him to expand his career by moving to a bigger club.
Isco is bound to leave, so too bad Malaga fans.
Never mind the fact that Malaga Executive Vice-president Moayad Shatat suggested he will not be sold for anything less than the €35million release clause in his contract.
This release clause is not going to be such a big deal to rich clubs, who are ready to pounce on him.
Isco's memorable performances in the recently concluded Under-21 European Championship in Jerusalem would attract more clubs to try and get his signature.
Yes, Isco was instrumental in Spain's success of retaining the Under-21 European Championship and in style as well.
The battle for Isco's signature, at least for now, is an intriguing two-way affair between Spanish giants Real Madrid and English big spenders Manchester City.
This has been admitted by the 21-year-old Isco, himself.
He has yet to decide whether to stay put in the Primera Liga with Real or face a brand new experience and challenge in the English Premier League with City.
Primera Liga fanatics all over the world, of course, would not want to see another player of high quality leaving, especially to English Premier League.
This is because these fanatics, among others, have yet to see Isco's full potential on show in Primera Liga, despite commanding a regular spot in Malaga's first 11 last season with 36 starts.
And to them, the best place for Isco is still in Spain, in Primera Liga.
El Loco agrees. It will be better for Isco to stay put for now, considering his age. He can try elsewhere when he is more experienced.
Isco must be in a dilemma in picking which club he will be playing in the 2013/14 season. Real or City?
Real may have a slight edge in getting his services but there is question of whether he can get to play regularly.
However, Real sporting director Zinedene Zidane said that Isco would be given a regular spot in the team if he joined them despite the presence of superstars, according to reports.
Real look desperate here.
But this also shows how a huge club respect and want this highly-talented Isco - who normally operates in the center of midfield but can effectively plays along the right or left flank as well.
This regular spot factor can sway Isco in choosing the Bernabeu instead of the Etihad Stadium.
Isco is set to get a lot of playing time with City - if he chooses them - simply because new manager Manuel Pellegrini was with him at Malaga.
This means City do have the chance to land Isco. Pellegrini has the ability to convince him.
What will happen in the end?
El Loco feels that he will end up playing for Real. And this is good for the Primera Liga.
