Isco: Has committed his future to Malaga

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea were among those believed to be keeping a close eye on the 20-year-old playmaker.

He has, however, taken the decision to commit himself to his Spanish employers, with a three-year extension including a €35million (£30m) buyout clause.

"It's a big step for me and for Malaga," said Isco.

"I'm grateful because they brought me to the city.

"I have trust in this team and I think we will continue improving this year, and that's good for me and for the club.

"I'm happy to have renewed. What happens in the future, nobody knows. Nobody has contacted me, these are rumours and run every day. It isn't time to talk about it now."

Offers

Malaga sporting director Mario Husillos is delighted to see Isco put pen to paper, as he admits formal approaches had been made.

He said: "The player has always been very clear that the only option was to stay at Malaga.

"There have been offers from other clubs, but the main thing for me is that he continues in Malaga."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
