Real Madrid midfielder Isco has sparked rumours he is planning a move to Barcelona after uploading a picture of himself with a packet of Barcelona-branded crisps.
Isco, who has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in the summer, uploaded the picture onto Twitter which mistakenly featured crisps styled in the stripes of Barcelona's classic home kit.

Thankfully for Madrid fans Isco was quick to rectify the situation, posting: "I’m not going to Barca. With the photo, I wanted to say that we wanted to eat them with potatoes. #HalaMadrid!!"
He added: "By the way I have not tried them! They were for my friends."

According to the Sun, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham are among the top Premier League sides interested in signing the Spain international. However, it is thought Barcelona have also been monitoring the 24-year-old, having enquired about him.
He has been largely underused by manager Zinedine Zidane but has still impressed this season, scoring seven goals and adding five assists in 24 La Liga appearances.
