Sevilla have announced the signing of Isco. The former Real Madrid playmaker becomes the club’s third signing of the window.
The Spaniard has arrived in Sevilla ahead of undergoing his medical tomorrow and will sign a two-year contract, according to the club.
He had turned down offers from other European teams, as his priority was to stay in Spain. And in La Liga, the options were with Sevilla, the only club other than the big three that could guarantee him Champions League football next season.
Isco has played his part in the deal, lowering his salary to join the Andalusian side. As reported by AS, the club are suggesting that Isco’s fixed salary will be five times less than what he received at Real Madrid, meaning he will earn just over one million euros net in each of his two seasons at the Sánchez Pizjuán.
By contrast, Isco’s contract also has a significant amount of variables, which if met in full could see the Malagueño’s salary shoot up to five million euros – 10 million for two seasons.
