Isco has admitted he is flattered at being linked with Real Madrid but insisted no decision on his future had been made.
The playmaker impressed for Malaga in La Liga last season, scoring 12 goals as they finished sixth in the table, but the club’s ban in Europe may see him leave the club, with both Real Madrid and Manchester City said to be interested.
The 21-year-old is currently at the Under-21 European Championships in Israel with Spain and stated he is fully focused on doing well there rather than a potential transfer.
Although he admitted he was particularly flattered at being linked with Real, Isco was quick to point out he wanted to play regularly – possibly making him reluctant to head to the Bernabeu.
“I am proud that Real Madrid are interested,” he told As. “There’s no arguing that they are a big club. It is important for me to play regularly, though.”
Isco has continued to impress during the Under-21 tournament, with his performances only serving to enhance his reputation.
Spain play Norway in the semi-finals of the competition and that is what the youngster is concentrating on, admitting that nothing had changed since he left for Israel.
“There’s nothing new to say,” he added. “And I would probably not say it if there were any new developments.
“I will make a decision on my future once the European Under-21 Championship has come to an end.”
