Real Madrid fans are uncomfortable and baffled after pictures emerged of Isco in training looking out of shape.
The 28-year-old was left out of the weekend's 3-1 El Clasico win after limited action this season.
And the images, which have stunned some Real Madrid fans, perhaps go some way to explaining why.
Supporters were left questioning his physical state, with the Spaniard looking podgy and scruffy in training pics.
Isco appeared a long way from the fit athlete he was a few years ago, when he was regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world.
The midfielder has been limited to only 148 minutes of on-field action this season and fans are concerned they may not see much more of him in the near future.
Manager Zinedine Zidane when asked about the star after Madrid lost to Cadiz last week, mostly sidestepped the question.
Social media users were quick to jump on Isco's new look.
One posted that they suspected Isco was eating McDonald's for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Another said they still believed in him but he ‘gotta turn it around.'
