The 25-year-old actually signed the deal in July, before heading to the USA for Real's pre-season tour, but it was agreed not to make the extension public until this month.

What do you make of Isco's new deal?

"We know there is so much talent in our squad and with hard work we can keep achieving more things", said the former world player of the year after the Super Cup triumph.

"If we think it will be easier [to face Barcelona without Neymar], we are mistaken".
