While the 21-year-old - who joined Los Blancos from Real Mallorca in 2015 - does not want to leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, he is prepared to if manager Zinedine Zidane cannot offer him assurances of more game time.

Barca could be stumped in their efforts to land Asensio, too, after Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo (h/t The Sun's Andrew Richardson) reported they want to hand him a new deal complete with a £136 million release clause.

Real Madrid's Isco celebrates the second goal. Jose Mourinho's side were forced to dance to Isco's tune on the night as the Spaniard, operating in the number 10 position, orchestrated another Real Madrid victory.

"I'm very happy to have the confidence Real Madrid shows in me".

Alongside last season's league and cup double, and the 2016 Champions League triumph, Zidane has led Real's first-team squad to silverware success in the UEFA Super Cup twice and the FIFA Club World Cup last summer. I'm happy to be working so well with my staff.

However, according to AS, Isco has signed a new four-year deal with the option of a further year following his man of the match display against Manchester United in the Super Cup. The staff are doing a great job, we do not fail because of the relationship in the dressing room.

Barcelona face arch rivals and La Liga champions Madrid in the first leg of Spain's traditional curtain raiser on Sunday at the Nou Camp.

The agreement includes a massive 700-million-euro release clause, with Real following a policy of securing their stars with prohibitive figures in a bid to avoid the scenario that recently saw Paris Saint-Germain sign Neymar from Barcelona by paying his 222-million-euro buy-out fee.

"They have had changes".

"Neymar can not be replaced - there is nobody like him". If we think it's going to be easier [without Neymar] then we're wrong.

"He's an important player for us, he works hard and he's crucial".
