Real Madrid midfielder Isco: I want to stay - but need to play

Real Madrid midfielder Isco cannot guarantee staying beyond the end of this season.

Isco struck twice in victory at Sporting Gijon on Saturday.

"I have always made it clear that I want to be here for many years," the Spaniard stated post-game.

"I don't know why it surprises people that I want to play more.

"I want to stay in Madrid and for many years, both the club and I are going to make the right decision."

However, Isco stopped short of criticising coach Zinedine Zidane for any lack of game time.

"Substitute? Zidane creates the line-ups and is taking the squad in an extraordinary direction," he continued.

"[The win] is a sign that he is doing things very well.

"I know that I am at the best team in the world and I try to do my job with a lot of personality."
