Spanish and European champions Real announced on Friday (AEST) that Isco had signed a four-year extension to his current contract, which was due to expire at the end of this campaign.

"I never thought about the possibility of being signed by Barcelona, because my idea was to triumph in Real Madrid", Alarcon said at press conference after signing the new contract. "We think we can win this (Europa League) title", Prieto said.

Real Madrid are planning to enter the market with Gareth Bale next summer as the Welshman is not being considered as someone to take over the baton from talisman Cristiano Ronaldo. Marcelo will miss Sunday's match at Real Sociedad and Wednesday's game against Real Betis.

"We had a good start to the season with the two Super Cups, but we want to keep winning things".

Barca, fresh from Tuesday's emphatic 3-0 Champions League victory over Juventus, will have the chance provisionally to move seven points clear of Real and Atletico Madrid and coach Ernesto Valverde has indicated he will give game time to fringe players. "It's unbelievable, I couldn't have hoped for more".

Isco had already proven his talent before his arrival to the Bernabeu stadium.

He has also been in fine form for Spain, scoring three goals in recent wins over Italy and Liechtenstein. He was awarded the Golden Boy Award in 2012 as the best Under-21 player in Europe.

The former Malaga man has made 22 worldwide appearances, scoring twice in the World Cup qualifying win over Italy earlier this month.

A home victory over Madrid would extend Real Sociedad's ideal record and keep it at the top of the league standings after four matches.
