Sevilla have reached an agreement in principle to sign free agent Isco on a two-year deal.

The former Real Madrid midfielder will undergo a medical on Monday before finalising his move to Julen Lopetegui’s side.

Isco, 30, will become Sevilla’s third signing of the summer after the arrivals of centre-back Marcao from Galatasaray and Manchester United left-back Alex Telles on a season-long loan deal.

The former Valencia and Malaga midfielder won three La Liga titles, the Copa del Rey and five Champions Leagues during his nine-year spell at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Isco announced his Real Madrid departure on his Instagram account at the end of May.

Writing on Instagram, Isco said: “Real Madrid knocked on my door and Real Madrid cannot and should not be told no, although there are always exceptions.

“I remember telling my people Madrid hasn’t won the Champions League for many years, and I have a feeling that it’s about to change and (then) La Decima arrived, everything that comes after is already history.

“Nine years later my time at the club that has made it possible for me to fulfil all the dreams I had when I was little comes to an end.

“I want to thank my teammates, coaches, coaching staff, physios, kit men, workers at Valdebebas and Santiago Bernabeu for all the work, love and support that everyone needs and that I have never lacked.

“I also want to thank the fans who welcomed me in an incredible way from the first day and who accompany this team in every corner of the world!
