Though he’s yet to reveal his starting XI for the
Supercopa de Espana against Barcelona , Zinedine Zidane has given a few clues, one of which appears to be a belief that Isco can play alongside BBC.
With both Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale’s futures now seemingly settled, the front three will likely remain untouchable when all three are fit, meaning the Frenchman’s biggest decision could be who staffs his midfield.
“We are all well, perfect physically and mentally,” Zidane said to reporters on Saturday evening.
“Everyone wants to play and that’s good, meaning I will have to make choices.
“Cristiano is ready, he’s fine. He’s had a vacation but has physically worked hard and is ready.”
Ask specifically about whether Isco and BBC could play in the same XI, the coach was a little more forthcoming.
“He [Isco] may be compatible,” the Frenchman continued.
“I can do a lot of things, you’ll see how we’re going to play on Sunday.”
