Isco completes shock move to Real Madrid’s LaLiga rival

Sevilla have officially confirmed the signing of Isco Alarcón as the club on Monday announced the Spanish midefider’s arrival from Real Madrid, Newspremises reports.

The former Valencia star joined Sevilla as a free agent after spending 9 years with European and Spanish Champions.


Isco who has been without a club since his contract with Real Madrid expired in June, has reportedly put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal, the Seville-based club announced on Monday August 7.

“We have reached an agreement in principle with Isco to become our third signing of the window,” the Andalusian side said in a statement.

“He has already arrived in Sevilla ahead of undergoing his medical tomorrow (Monday) and, should all go well, sign a two-year contract.”

The Spain international is pushing to get more game time before the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup later this year, after dropping down the pecking order at Los Blancos, where he had a bit-part role under Carlo Ancelotti.

He becomes the LaLiga side’s third summer signing after Brazilian defender, Marcao came from Galatasaray and Brazil left-back Alex Telles on loan from Manchester United.

Isco will however, be reunited with former Spain and Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui.

The 30-year-old made 17 appearances for Real last season, only starting three matches.

Sevilla finished fourth in LaLiga last season and will play in the Champions League this campaign.
