David De Gea feels Isco has the talent and personality to "become one of the greatest" after the Spain international made a flying start to the season for club and country.

Isco scored in Real Madrid's UEFA Super Cup victory over De Gea's Manchester United last month and struck twice as Spain defeated Italy 3-0 on Saturday to take control of their World Cup qualifying group.

The 2010 world champions are three points clear of the Azzurri with three matches remaining and can take another major step toward securing a place in the finals in Russia by beating Liechtenstein away on Tuesday.

Speaking to the media before that game, United goalkeeper De Gea claimed Isco's sparkling form of late is no accident.

"Personally I have known Isco for ages so it's no surprise for me what he's doing," he said.

"I have seen him doing incredible things for so long now so people shouldn't be surprised either.

"He's been performing at a high level and doing incredible things on the pitch for a while.

"He's at a top level and that's great for the team. We hope he keeps improving.

"Bearing in mind his personality, he'll become one of the greatest."
