Real Madrid attacker signs new contract with €700m release clause

Phil Jones

The Spain global impressed under Zinedine Zidane last season but didn't get regular game time.

Understandably, Asensio has been attracting plenty of interest as he's struggled to hold down a regular place in Zinedine Zidane's side and it's thought he wants more action ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

European football's fiercest rivals clash in the first leg of their cup extravaganza this weekend after Real won La Liga and Barca lifted the Copa del Rey.

However, his situation at Real Madrid underwent a dramatic U-turn in the second part of the season following Gareth Bale's injury.

Madrid are willing to offer players plus cash in a deal to bring the bright, young French talent to the Spanish capital this summer.

Spanish paper AS understands that Isco has signed a new contract at Real Madrid with a €700m release clause, also stating that an announcement will be made within the next few days.

The agreement includes a massive 700-million-euro release clause, with Real following a policy of securing their stars with prohibitive figures in a bid to avoid the scenario that recently saw Paris Saint-Germain sign Neymar from Barcelona by paying his 222-million-euro buy-out fee.

Isco tried to play down concerns of the Real Madrid fans earlier this week after he was named man of the match in the 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the Uefa Super Cup on 8 August, insisting that he will sign a new deal sooner rather than later.

Los Blancos are preparing to announce the new contract at an official ceremony at the Bernabeu.
