However, the 25-year-old was in top form on Tuesday night as he scored the victor to help Madrid beat United in the European Super Cup.

Los Blancos saw their two-goal lead cut in half at the Philip II Arena on Tuesday night to set up a potentially nervy finish in the curtain-raising fixture of the new European campaign.

He may have helped put Manchester United to the sword in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday, but Isco was very almost a Red Devil player - if not for a insane scouting report a few years ago.

He played a crucial role under manager Zinedine Zidane last season as Madrid won the La Liga title and Champions League.

The Madrid superstar was videoed leaving Madrid's coach in Skopje ahead of the European Super Cup, but he momentarily lost his balance as he slipped on a stray towel placed on the steps of the team bus.

After United backed off their interest in the Spaniard, Real Madrid ended up acquiring the now-25-year-old for €30 million, and the rest is history.

"We know we've got a lot of talent and that with hard work we can achieve great things", he said.

"We're very hungry, we always want more".

"There were great celebrations in the dressing room, that's normal, we never get exhausted of winning".

"It was a near ideal performance", Zidane said of the win over United.

He followed that up with a UEFA Super Cup win over Sevilla and then a FIFA Club World Cup win in December 2016.
