Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane spoke on Friday of his wish to keep attacking midfielder Isco Alarcon, but refused to comment on Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas’ future at the record European football champions.

“He (Isco) looks very good. I’ve got a squad of 24 players and I don’t want to think about the future. I’m concerned with the players I have and the competitions we’re involved in,” Zidane said at a press conference on the eve of La Liga match with Osasuna, reports Efe.

The coach expressed his satisfaction with the level of the Costa Rican, but did not deny that the club is seeking a new goalkeeper.

His message was more direct concerning Iso, saying “The club and the player will decide on his future. He’s an important player for us, he works hard and he’s crucial.”

“He’s a player I’m very fond of,” added Zidane.
