Isco Alarcon has confirmed that he will stay with Real Madrid. Spanish TV show Jugones showed a video of him mumbling "I'm staying" when a reporter inquired him about his future.

The latest rumors suggested that Isco could be on his way out to join Tottenham or even Malaga on loan, but the midfielder will finally stay and compete for a starting spot with Casemiro and James.
This will be a very long season for Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane will need every player to rotate the squad and keep his starting lineup fresh. It's also true that James Rodriguez, Isco and Marco Asensio will be on the bench when Madrid play big games, unless Casemiro, Luka Modric or Toni Kroos get injured.
Isco will possibly address his situation once again next winter. If he is happy with his role, he will stay, otherwise he could leave and play relevant minutes elsewhere.
