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."

The 24-year-old is out of contract in 2018 and faces an uncertain future, having made it clear he wants to play more regular first-team football.
This is the second time Isco has denied he is joining Barca after reports in Spain claimed the Catalan club would offer him a huge signing fee to run down his contract and move to them on a free transfer.
