Sevilla are all set to sign Isco in the coming days, as a free agent. The midfielder left Real Madrid at the end of the previous season when his contract expired, and is going to stay in La Liga.
He was close to reaching an agreement with Real Betis over a free transfer. However, they weren’t able to afford him as they failed to qualify for the Champions League. Now, he is set to reunite with former Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui at the Basque club.
Isco joins Sevilla until 2024
An official statement has confirmed that Sevilla have an agreement with Isco for the free transfer:
“Sevilla FC has reached an agreement in principle with the player Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, known in football as Isco (Benalmádena, Málaga, April 21, 1992) for his incorporation as Sevilla FC’s third signing for the 2022/23 season. The attacker is already in Seville, to undergo the medical examination this Monday.
“If all goes well, he will sign his contract for the next two seasons. After taking his first steps in clubs on the Malaga coast, when he was only 14 years old, Valencia CF noticed him. Already at a young age he made the leap to Valencia Mestalla, while his official debut with the first team came in a cup match against Logroñés. That same season, 2010/11, he participated in two Champions League matches and one in LaLiga with the Che team.”
