Isco, during his renewal presentation which sees him remain at the club until 2022, referenced the possibility of signing with Barcelona when it seemed negotiations over a new deal with Real Madrid were not moving as fast as expected.
Asked about the offers from the Camp Nou, Isco said, "there were talks and offers but I never listened to any of them. My objective is to triumph in the team that counted on me more when I left Malaga. I want to continue solidifying my place in the starting line-up here."
He returned to the question and stated more emphatically, "Sign with Barcelona? Never. As I said from the first moment, my idea was to succeed at Real Madrid. It's true that there were some bad moments here but that has made me enjoy the good ones even more. I have won three Champions Leagues and I still have the hunger to help this team continue winning."
