Real Madrid midfielder Isco has reached an agreed agreement to join fellow La Liga rivals Sevilla for the coming season, according to a report.
Isco was released by Real Madrid along with the likes of Marcelo and Gareth Bale at the end of the season following their contract expiration.
Isco joined Real Madrid from Malaga and showed great form for a couple of seasons where he was a key player under ex-manager Zinedine Zidane and helped the Bernabeu outfit to five Champions League titles, three La Liga and a Copa del Rey during his nine seasons with the Blancos.
A statement from Sevilla reads: “Sevilla FC has reached an agreement in principle with the player Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, known in football as Isco, 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.”
The former Valencia attacking midfielder will be reunited with former manager Julen Lopetegui, who endured an ill-fated spell as Real Madrid manager in 2018.
Isco suffered a dip in form and became a fringe player under the second spell of Zidane at Real Madrid and in Carlo Ancelloti’s return, he failed to perform at par playing a peripheral role as Real Madrid side lifted the Champions League last season.
Isco played a total of 246 games for Real Madrid and scored 37 goals as an attacking midfielder.
Isco has earned 38 international caps for Spain and scored 12 goals.
