ISCO is set to leave Sevilla only four months after signing for the club, dramatic reports suggests.
The midfielder had been trying to find his feet at a new club after a difficult few years at Real Madrid.
Isco’s unpredictable career could be set to take another turnRex
But his move to Sevilla has not gone to plan and the six-times Europa League winners find themselves in the relegation zone after 14 games.
The manager Julen Lopetegui, who is believed to have been a close ally of Isco, was sacked in October after the club’s poor start to the season.
And now the 30-year-old could himself be on the way out, according to Marca.
Despite signing a two-year contract as recently as August, the star could reportedly rip up his contract after a breakdown in relationship with senior club figures.
The Spanish publication report he is in “open conflict” with director of football Monchi.
They reported last month: “Tension is palpable in each training. And Isco let Monchi know that he was at Sevilla at Lopetegui’s request, not because Monchi himself wanted his signing.”
It represents a big challenge to current Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli who is looking to stop the club being relegated for the first time since 1997.
Isco had been a regular starter in the team and appeared in 12 of their 14 league games.
But he only has two assists to show for his efforts domestically.
His only Sevilla goal came in 3-0 Champions League win over FC Copenhagen.
Isco’s potential departure could catch the interest of several Premier League clubs.
Lopetegui, now boss at Wolves, may also fancy a reunion with the no.10 at Molineux. The Spanish manager is believed to want several new faces at the club.
