Zinedine Zidane has branded the Spanish TV show who claimed Isco was for sale this summer, ‘liars’.
The Frenchman was speaking after El Chiringuito TV claimed he’d personally decided to offload the world-class playmaker.
Their report suggested Zidane had run out of patience with the 25-year-old, but Real’s boss has assured the media this isn’t the case.
Zidane: "I want Isco to spend all his career here. That will not change. He is a very good footballer, he has shown that, and can always show that. So [@elchiringuitotv ] report it is a lie.”

In truth, we knew Isco wouldn’t become available with Real Madrid already regretting the decision to offload James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata in the summer.
Liverpool are not considering Thomas Lemar anymore, so a new Coutinho-replacement will have to be discovered.
Our money’s on a bumper move for Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic.
He’s young, American and has worked with Klopp before. Plus, although they charge extravagant fees, Dortmund sell their best players.
Although we’ve got a very exciting season to focus on first!
