Several former Real Madrid free agents are finding new clubs this transfer window. Isco is one of them, having been without a club since leaving Sevilla during the winter. He had a fallout with the board and the coach with the Basque club and is now expected to sign for Rayo Vallecano in the coming weeks.
Negotiations between the two parties are quite advanced and should be completed very soon. Reports from Spain, in particular, from Mundo Deportivo, suggest that the player has chosen Vallecano as his next destination and the move is only a matter of time.
During the January transfer window, there were strong possibilities of a move to Union Berlin for the midfielder. But due to financial issues and several other minor reasons, the transfer fell through and he has been away from football for the second half of the 2022/23 season.
Isco to sign for Rayo Vallecano as a free agent in the coming weeks
After carefully considering his options, the midfielder has chosen Rayo Vallecano as the best possible option to take his career forward. There were links with a move abroad to Porto as well – but the club’s head coach, Sergio Conceiçao, was not convinced of Isco’s abilities. As a result, a transfer to Portugal did not materialise for him.
The 31-year-old is now set to stay in Madrid for the next chapter of his career, which should be finalised soon. Alongside him, Real Madrid players like Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard are all leaving the club and are moving elsewhere for the next phases of their career.
