Isco: I'm staying at Real Madrid

Isco has dismissed the possibility of making a last minute move away from Real Madrid, insisting he is staying put.

The midfielder's future has been the subject of a lot of speculation throughout the summer, with even Zinedine Zidane not ruling out a transfer away for the Spain international.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with Isco, who has been unable to nail down a regular spot in the Madrid first-team.

Reports suggested the Premier League side were preparing a late swoop for the 24-year-old, with manager Mauricio Pochettino said to have been in touch with him.

Meanwhile, Malaga's president, Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani, had hinted that he could be on his way back to the Spanish side, stating he is "sure" he will return some day.

Isco, however, says no such move will materialise this summer.

At a media event at the Santiago Bernabeu, he told TV cameras: "I'm staying, I'm staying."

Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga in summer 2013. He has won two Champions League titles, a Copa del Rey and the Club World Cup with the Spanish giants and is contracted to the club until July 2018.
