Another quality signing for Los Verdiblanco

Isco has been under Los Verdiblanco’s radar for a while, and he was rumored to be wanted by the club’s boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The 31-year-old made his name known to the football world back in 2011 when he was the superstar of Malaga and managed by Pellegrini.

However, after the 2017/18 season, Isco was no longer a favorite choice in Real Madrid’s starting XI, which urged him to find an exit and eventually join Sevilla on a free transfer in 2022. Isco scored 53 goals in 353 games for Real Madrid but made just 17 appearances during his final season at the Bernabeu.

Isco has 38 Spain caps, the last coming in 2019, and scored one goal in 19 appearances for Sevilla before getting his contract terminated only four months joined the Seville side. Following Isco’s departure, coach Jorge Sampaoli said the former Real Madrid player failed to meet their expectations.
