The former Real Madrid midfielder will undergo a medical on Monday before completing the transfer, Sevilla added.

Spain midfielder Isco will become the Andalusian club’s third signing of the summer after they brought in defender Alex Telles on long-term loan from Manchester United on Thursday and centre-back Marco from Galatasaray. last month.

Isco confirmed he will leave Real Madrid in May after nine successful years in the Spanish capital, winning 19 trophies including three national championships, five Champions League cups and four Club World Cups.

The 30-year-old spent two seasons with Malaga and also played for Valencia, making over 350 appearances and scoring 53 goals for Real.

However, he was used sparingly by coach Carlo Ancelotti last season, making just 17 appearances in all competitions as Real won the league and Champions League.

Isco, 38 caps for Spain, has worked with Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui twice before – with the national team during preparations for the 2018 World Cup and later that year during his brief stint Spanish coach in charge of Real.

The Andalusian club, who finished fourth in the league last season, kick off their new campaign with a trip to Osasuna on Friday.
