Real Madrid player Isco Alarcón was originally implicated in the sexual assault accusation levied against David De Gea and Iker Muniain, but his involvement has since been questioned. The latest report also added that Isco "could have been mistaken with another player because the description did not match Isco's look."

El Diario initially reported that De Gea had forced a pair of women to have sex with Muniain and "a third player" in 2012 when all three were with the Spanish U-21 team. The report also added that the police found her statement "reliable".

Although authorities have investigated the accusations -- which are part of a larger investigation into pornographer Ignacio Fernandez Allende -- they have not yet brought charges against any of the three players.

David De Gea spoke in press conference and said that "everything is false," and neither the Police nor the judge have called the players to speak in trial.

Isco published the following statement on his Twitter account, translated below:

"Knowing that my name has appeared in several reports during the last few hours, I want to state that I was not involved in any way on those things being reported. I am not aware of what happened and I never was. I asked my lawyers to do everything on their hand so that it's clear that my name being mentioned was a big mistake and a great injustice."
