“During the course of the talks, we realized that our negotiating partner was no longer willing to move within the framework originally discussed,” Isco’s Gestifute consulting agency told the tabloid. The 38-time national player has been in Berlin since Monday and should sign a contract until 2024, which also includes the option for another season.

Union manager Oliver Ruhnert said via the club media: “We would have liked to see Isco with us, but we have our limits. These were exceeded today, contrary to previous agreements, so the transfer will not take place.”

Isco’s contract with Sevilla FC was terminated at the end of 2022, meaning that the former Real Madrid player would not have cost a fee. “This win is for you, Isco,” said Union captain Christopher Trimmel after the 2-0 win in the derby against Hertha BSC Instagram written and fueled the speculation further. Isco responded with a muscle emoji.
