Isco, who was an unused substitute in Real Madrid’s 3-1 Clásico win over Barcelona at Camp Nou on Saturday, was seen on Movistar TV talking to Luka Modric and Marcelo as they sat in the stands before kick-off.

If [Zidane] has to take me off, he takes me off in the 50th or 60th minute, sometimes at half-time,” Isco said. “If he has to bring me on, he brings me on in the 80th minute.”

The Spanish midfielder has made 159 appearances for Real Madrid under Zidane, scoring 27 and providing 25 assists. This season, he has played just 147 minutes for Los Blancos.
