If sources in Spain are to be believed, Friday beings some good news for Real Madrid fans.
That news? Well AS are reporting that Isco – the man with the silk feet who for so long a transfer target of other clubs – has signed a new deal with the La Liga champions.
AS say it is a four-year deal with the option of extending it by another season
That’s all good but there is another very, very interesting detail in the story. Isco’s buy-out clause has been set at €700m. Yeah, seriously.
Madrid – and presumably lots of other clubs are running scared after what happened with Barcelona and PSG. Indeed, AS add: “There are no players in Madrid’s first-team squad with a clause below 500m … And in Castilla [Real’s ‘B’ team], there are now players with clauses of 300m.”
Wow. Just wow
