Sevilla reach tentative agreement to sign free agent Isco on a two-year deal

Sevilla have reached an agreement in principle to sign free agent Isco on a two-year deal.

The former Real Madrid midfielder will undergo a medical on Monday before finalizing his transfer alongside Julen Lopetegui.

Isco, 30, will become Sevilla’s third signing this summer following the arrivals of centre-back Marcao from Galatasaray and Manchester United left-back Alex Telles on a season-long loan deal.

The former Valencia and Malaga midfielder won three La Liga titles, the Copa del Rey and five Champions Leagues during his nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Isco announced his departure from Real Madrid at the end of May on his Instagram account.

Writing on Instagram, Isco said: “Real Madrid knocked on my door and Real Madrid cannot and should not be told no, although there are always exceptions.

“I remember telling my people that Madrid haven’t won the Champions League for many years, and I have a feeling that’s about to change and (then) La Decima came. , everything that comes after is already history.

“Nine years later, my time at the club which allowed me to realize all the dreams I had when I was little is coming to an end.

“I want to thank my teammates, coaches, coaching staff, physios, kitmen, Valdebebas and Santiago Bernabeu workers for all the work, love and support that everyone needs and that I never missed.

“I also want to thank the fans who have welcomed me in an incredible way from day one and who accompany this team all over the world!

“Goodbye and Hala Madrid.”
