Isco insists he is happy at Real Madrid and he expects to sign a new contract with the European champions over the summer.

The Spain international played an integral role as Los Blancos claimed Ligue 1 and Champions League glory during the 2016-17 campaign, scoring a total 11 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions.

The 25-year-old had been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu over the course of the season and he is out of contract with the club next summer, but he insists his future remains in Madrid and he will sign a new deal over the coming weeks.

“I have already said we are close [to a renewal]. I am very happy in Madrid and hope to be there for many years,” Isco told Teledeporte.

“Now it is time to rest as the season has been very long.”

The former Malaga ace admits his confidence is high as he has now firmly established his place in Zinedine Zidane’s side, while he has also emerged as a key figure for Spain, setting up Diego Costa during La Roja’s 2-1 World Cup qualifying victory in Macedonia on Sunday.

“I have finished the season very well,” he added. “Confidence is key for anyone. From the beginning of the season I have felt very comfortable.”

Isco will be looking to pick up where he left off next season, with Real priced at 5.50 to claim Champions League glory for the third successive campaign.
