are stalling are stalling in contract talks with reported target , Spanish newspaper Marca is reporting.

The Madrid based publication say Real are reluctant to hand out another large contract after giving substantial new deals to and already this season.

President and the club’s board are believed to have told Isco that they will revisit contract talks at the end of the season when the 24 year old will only have 12 months remaining on his current deal.

The playmaker has been used regularly by this season. He has played 22 times, scoring four goals and providing four assists, but Madrid are looking to see where he fits into Zidane’s plans by the end of the game, rather than offering the player a new deal now when his place in the side is still uncertain.

If he doesn’t sign a new deal, Real would look to recoup as much of the €30million (£26m) they paid for the player back in 2013.
