MADRID (AP) - Real Madrid says it has extended the contract of Francisco “Isco” Alarcon until the end of the 2022 season, keeping the talented attacking midfielder tied to the club for another four seasons.

Isco’s current contract was valid until June 2018.

The 25-year-old playmaker has been a key player for Madrid over the last couple of seasons. He also became a regular starter with Spain’s national team.

Madrid is seventh in the Spanish league standings after three matches, four points behind leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad.
