Easy for Real Madrid in Spanish Copa del Rey

Real Madrid's newly-appointed manager Santiago Solari has made the decision to relegate Isco to a secondary role at Real Madrid, and this could only mean one thing: the reigning champions of Europe look set to part ways with the talented playmaker as soon as the chance arises.

Santiago Solari declared himself pleased with Isco after he was restored to the Real Madrid starting line-up and produced a fine double in their 6-1 Copa del Rey win over Melilla.

"This game let us see many players who are well and committed", Solari added.

The fixture was a curtain raiser for Sunday's Copa Libertadores second leg final between Argentinian rivals Boca Juniors and River Plate. "It's a competition that I am passionate about, I think it's brilliant".

Marco Asensio opened the scoring after the half hour, setting in motion a flurry of three goals in six minutes.

Already 3-0 and cruising, Isco popped up to ping home Los Blancos' fourth unanswered goal from the edge of the area mere minutes into the second half.

The 26-year-old has not started a game for his side since their disastrous defeat to Barcelona in the Clasico, but Solari still feels he is an important member of the squad.

Real Madrid have quietened down the whispers surrounding star midfielder Isco's exit in the January window by demanding clubs meet his release clause which stands at a whopping €700m.

"It doesn't matter what division our opposition are playing in".

"I'm also very happy for Asensio, who scored two goals, and for Vinícius, who also grabbed one".

"Vinicius plays on the left and we adjust the positions accordingly".
