It’s not coming to Berlin anymore: Isco’s move to Bundesliga football club 1. FC Union soon exploded.
Instead of the announced transfer coup, there are mutual accusations: Former real star Isco is not moving to Bundesliga club 1. FC Union Berlin.
Ruhnert: “Limits crossed”
“Everything was discussed before the medical checkup,” Union general manager Oliver Ruhnert said on Tuesday evening’s “Sky” program: “But then the contract was again requested to change.” According to Ruhnert, the original “package” might have been suitable for Union – “but we don’t get involved in things that don’t suit us.”
Isco’s consulting firm “Gestifute” sees the problem at Union and tells “Bild”: it has been discussed.”
Union is about to be officially relegated
The truth is: In a day that started as a new turning point for second place in the Bundesliga, there is a serious setback. The commitment of a star like Isco, including five-time Champions League winners with Real Madrid, could solidify Irons, who is playing officially for relegation until he reaches 40 points, taking him to a new level.
The signings of World Cup drivers Josip Juranovic from Croatia and Aïssa Laïdouni from Tunisia have already demonstrated this.
Isco had already arrived for a medical checkup.
30 years of impending change Isco has created excitement before. When the former Spanish international came to the Charité for a morning checkup, there was great excitement in the media and among Demirler.
Now they only have the opportunity to imagine how the good mechanic would perform in coach Urs Fischer’s system: would Isco raise the team’s sometimes still somewhat calculable ball possession game to a new level, or would it be difficult with the running requirements? in Köpenick.
Teammates in anticipation
Even the Union players fueled the flirtation with Isco. Captain Christopher Trimmel wrote after his 2-0 win against capital Hertha BSC last Saturday: “This victory is for you, Isco.”
His teammates reacted immediately – so did the public. There was no clear denial from club bosses. Club president Dirk Zingler said over the weekend he was honored to have Union associated with such a player.
Isco was last active in FC Sevilla
Isco has been clubless since December 21, 2022. Most recently, he had a four-month contract with FC Sevilla. He appeared in 353 games for Real Madrid between 2013 and 2022 with 53 goals and 57 assists.
So now the Berliners are finishing the season without Spaniards and they are still doing a great job. Currently the first Bayern follower in the league is in the Europa League qualifying round against Ajax Amsterdam. And today (20:45) against VfL Wolfsburg in the last 16 of the DFB Cup, there is a chance to quickly forget the melee.
