Isco Position and Number
While playing for Valencia CF’s youth system, Isco made his debut with the first team on 11 November 2010, against UD Logroñés for the campaign’s Copa del Rey, scoring two goals in a 4–1 home win. He previously spent one full season with the reserves in Segunda División B, netting once in 26 games and suffering relegation.
He played his first La Liga match on 14 November 2010, featuring 20 minutes in a 2–0 home win against Getafe CF after coming on as a substitute for Aritz Aduriz.
Isco Real – Isco Madrid
On 27 June 2013, Isco signed a five-year contract, with Real Madrid paying €30 million for his services, thus becoming the first signing of newly appointed manager Carlo Ancelotti. On 18 August 2013 he made his official debut for the Merengues, recording an assist and scoring the winning goal in a 2–1 home win over Real Betis, the latter coming through an 85th-minute header. He continued with his form by netting two goals against Athletic Bilbao on 1 September (3–1, also at the Santiago Bernabéu).
In spite of continuing to score regularly when featured, Isco received limited opportunities in the first team due to the 4–3–3 formation not being suited for his style, but Ancelotti stated that it was “a temporary problem”. He scored 11 goals in 53 official games in his first season, including 61 minutes in the Champions League final, a 4–1 win over Atlético Madrid.
Isco started the first game of the 2014–15 season against Real Sociedad, and scored the first in a 4–1 win against UD Almería on 12 December 2014. He was a regular starter in the club’s FIFA Club World Cup winning campaign, scoring the last in a 4–0 semi-final routing of Cruz Azul. His performances over the season earned him many plaudits, and he was compared to Zinedine Zidane by the French legend himself.
Prior to the start of the 2015–16 season, Isco switched his shirt number from 23 to 22, which he had previously worn at Málaga. On 21 November 2015, as Real lost 0–4 at home to FC Barcelona in El Clásico, he was sent off in the 84th minute for a foul on Neymar. He scored twice on 2 December, as the team won 3–1 at Cádiz CF in the first leg of the last 32 of the domestic cup. Isco was a part-time starter when the team won the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League.
On 11 February 2017, Isco scored Real Madrid’s 100th goal of the season as he attained the game-winning goal in a 3–1 away victory against Osasuna. He appeared 30 times during the 2016–17 season, as Real Madrid won La Liga title; he also started in the Champions League final against Juventus, which Madrid won 4–1.
On 8 August 2017, Isco scored a goal in the 2017 UEFA Super Cup, contributing to Real Madrid’s 2–1 victory against Manchester United. His performance earned him the man of the match award.
On 14 September 2017, he signed a new deal with Real Madrid until June 2022. During the 2017–18 UEFA Champions League, he made eleven appearances, when Madrid won their third consecutive and 13th overall Champions League title.
In mid-July 2011, Isco signed a five-year contract with Málaga CF after the club activated his buy-out clause of €6 million. He scored his first goal for his new team on 21 November 2011, starting in a 3–1 away win against Racing de Santander; he netted again the following week in a 2–1 win against Villarreal CF, and finished his first season with 32 games and five goals as the side qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in its history.
On 18 September 2012, in Málaga’s first game in the Champions League group stage, Isco netted twice in a 3–0 home win over FC Zenit Saint Petersburg, also being chosen as Man of the Match. On 22 December he scored the first goal in an eventual 3–2 win against Real Madrid at La Rosaleda, leading the locals to their first victory over that opponent in 29 years; in December he won the Golden Boy award, beating Stephan El Shaarawy and Thibaut Courtois.
On 28 January 2013, Isco ended speculation regarding his future by signing a new contract with Málaga – his new buyout clause was set at €35 million. He scored his eleventh goal of the campaign on 13 March, netting the opener in a 2–0 home win against F.C. Porto, good enough for last-eight qualification after the 0–1 loss in Portugal.

Isco to Barcelona? The clubs that could sign the Real Madrid outcast with the €700m buyout clause
Adopted from: goal.com
Published: 1st December 2018
The Spaniard has yet to start a game under new coach Santiago Solari and is being linked with a transfer after being left out completely against Roma. Isco’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu has become the main talking point in Spanish football.
The 26-year-old is one of the most exciting and talented attacking midfielders in the league and a regular for Spain, but he had not even been handed a single start by new Blancos boss Santiago Solari before being dropped completely for the midweek trip to Rome.
There were reports that the coach axed Isco for disciplinary reasons, after an alleged show of disrespect towards the Argentine coach, but Solari later insisted it was purely tactical.
He said, “Dropping Isco was a specific decision for a specific moment,” he explained. “Coaches are in place to make decisions and that’s it; I am here to make decisions.
“Decisions are almost always sporting, except in exceptional cases, although there are none of those here.”
Some have suggested, including Isco’s team-mate Dani Ceballos, that Solari has simply yet to see Isco in peak physical condition.
The Andalusian needed appendicitis surgery in September and missed a month of action, returning only for Julen Lopetegui’s final match in charge, the 5-1 Clasico humiliation at Barcelona.
Although Luis Enrique handed the Madrid midfielder two starts for Spain during the recent international break, Isco has been on the bench for all three of Real’s Liga outings under Solari to date.
Consequently, speculation is now rife that Isco wants out. But where would he go? And, perhaps more pertinently, could anyone afford him?
In September 2017, and after much deliberation, he signed a €6 million-a-year deal which binds him to the Blancos until 2022.
The contract also includes a prohibitive €700m (£624m/$796m) release clause which no club in the world would dream of paying, given it is more than triple the current transfer fee record of €222m (£198m/$252m), which Paris Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar last year.
Several of Europe’s elite sides have been linked with Isco, from Pep Guardiola’s Man City to Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea. Arsenal, AC Milan and Napoli have also been mentioned as potential destinations.
