Isco has been forced to declare he is not joining Real Madrid’s rivals Barcelona after a controversy relating to a bag of crisps.
The in-form attacking midfielder posted a photo on Instagram this week that showed him relaxing with a group of friends, although the presence of a Barcelona-branded packet of crisps caused panic among Madrid supporters.
Isco deleted the offending image before posting a new photo that did not include the snack, before taking to Twitter in a bid to defuse any tension.
He posted: “I’m not joining Barca, you annoying people!
“This was a photo to say that we are going to beat them.”
Of the packet of crisps, he added: “By the way I have not tried them! They were for my friends.”
