The 20-year-old Spanish international penned his new deal at the end of January to put an end to speculation over a move, with Chelsea and Manchester City both strongly linked.

Isco insists he is more than happy at the club he joined in 2011 from Valencia.

"I'm not worried as I'm only thinking about being here," he told AS.

"If a team does come to pay a lot of money for me, it will definitely be a big club. Then, if it helps Malaga, I would have no problem in leaving if it was good for both of us."

Isco hailed the impact of Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini on his career.

"Pellegrini has been the most important person (for my career)," he said.

"I arrived here at 19 years of age, as an unknown, and he began to put me in game by game. He put all his confidence in me."

He also praised Spain boss Vicente del Bosque - who recently handed him his debut for his country.

"He is a very level-headed and calm person, he surprised me quite a bit," said Isco.

"When I went out on the pitch he told me not to be afraid, to do what I do for my team, to get involved and express myself. He gave me confidence and calmness."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
