In his 5 years at Madrid, he's scored 63 goals and dished out 34 assists in La Liga in just over 9,000 minutes - that's about 1 goal/assist per game.

However, they did earn a dramatic 1-1 home draw with league leaders Barcelona at the beginning of March and also earned a 1-1 draw with Deportivo in their last game before the worldwide break.

The Frenchman knows continuing in an upward trend will go a long way to satisfying those who had questioned his future as a result of a largely disappointing campaign.

- According to the Birmingham Mail, John Terry is set to extend his stay at Aston Villa beyond the current season if the club wins promotion to the Premier League. Then yes I will continue. There are some concerns about fit and depth for me, but overall, I'd never complain if City bought a world-class player like Isco. With a win against Paris Saint Germain a major boost, Real would take on Juventus in the Quarterfinal and a win on the a year ago runners-up will help Zidane's cause.

Isco and captain Sergio Ramos missed the game against Las Palmas due to knocks sustained on worldwide duty with Spain.

Zidane insisted he has no issue with Isco, who followed his hat-trick for Spain against Argentina on Tuesday by saying he does not feel the same confidence playing for Real as for his country.

He can still add match-winning quality to a forward line better whenever he starts.

The same source noted how Real Madrid President Florentino Perez expects to fetch a fee of £79 million for Bale. I personally have some doubts about where Isco can fit into this team, since we already have a few Isco-type players now on the roster in David Silva and Bernardo Silva.
