Union Berlin close to transfer hammer

Bundesliga club Union Berlin is apparently about to make a top transfer.

According to a report by the Spanish radio station “Cope”, the surprise team is in agreement with the five-time Champions League winner Isco.

According to “Sky”, the 30-year-old offensive player should sign a contract until 2024, which also includes the option of another season. The medical check is to take place on Tuesday, and the change period for the Bundesliga teams ends at 6:00 p.m.

Isco, who enjoyed great success with Real Madrid, is currently without a club after his contract with Sevilla FC was terminated at the end of the year. He had won the Champions League five times with the royals, three times he won the Spanish championship with Real and once the cup.

Last summer he moved to Sevilla FC after a total of nine years and 353 games in Madrid.

Most recently, Union captain Christopher Trimmel made direct reference to the rumors with comments on social media after the 2-0 win in the derby at Hertha BSC.

“This victory is for you, Isco,” the Austrian wrote on Instagram. Isco reacted immediately and commented with a muscle emoji. Some Union teammates also took up the full-back’s post.

Union boss Dirk Zingler did not want to betray any tendency on the sidelines of the Berlin derby against Hertha BSC. “We generally don’t comment on transfers,” said the 58-year-old, who added: “It’s a great honor for us when Isco is associated with us. Of course, we’re also developing in the area of ​​transfers.”
