Sevilla outcast-turned-free agent Isco has travelled to Germany to complete his deadline day move to Union Berlin, according to reports.

The former Real Madrid star is set to sign a short-term contract until 2024, with an option to extend the deal for an additional season. 

Isco and Sevilla mutually agreed to terminate his contract in December after the Spaniard fell out of favour with head coach Jorge Sampaoli, who insisted he ‘did not meet the club’s expectations’.

Ex-Sevilla star Isco is set to join Bundesliga side Union Berlin on a free transfer until June 2024

The midfielder only managed to record a goal and three assists in his 19 appearances for Sevilla since joining from Los Blancos last August.

He left the LaLiga champions on a free transfer in the summer after running down the remaining months of his long-term contract at the Bernabeu.

According to Sky Sports, Isco is now set for a fresh start at Union Berlin in the Bundesliga, with an obligatory medical check-up set to take place on deadline day.

Union Berlin manager Urs Fischer is mounting a title challenge against holders Bayern Munich

The high-flying German outfit have enjoyed an exceptional start to the campaign, sitting a point behind league leaders Bayern Munich, who have won the last 10 Bundesliga titles.

Head coach Urs Fischer will hope the addition of Isco helps his side consolidate their position in the top four, or better still secure a shock title upset this summer.

By recruiting Isco, Fischer has lured a serial winner to his squad in Berlin, with the playmaker chalking up five Champions League titles, three LaLiga crowns and four Club World Cup trophies during his time at the Bernabeu.

Whilst hurriedly finalising their deadline day deals, Union Berlin are also preparing to take on Wolfsburg in the German Cup on Tuesday evening.

Should the deal go through as expected, Isco is likely to be in contention for Berlin’s Bundesliga clash against Mainz at the weekend.
