Isco and Sevilla mutually agreed to end his employment relationship, and the LaLiga team has now made the official announcement of his departure.
The Spanish playmaker only joined the club four months ago when his contract with Real Madrid expired in the summer, but he has already decided to quit the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
According to a statement on the club’s website, Sevilla FC and Isco Alarcon have decided to break the agreement that has held them together since the Malaga midfielder joined the Nervionense club last summer after finishing his time at Real Madrid.
The statement concludes, “The club wishes Isco the very best of luck in his next professional challenges.”
The 30-year-old made a strong impression in his Sevilla debut and played a significant role in the starting lineups created by former manager Julen Lopetegui, who is currently in charge of Wolves.
But since Jorge Sampaoli came over in October, the playmaker hasn’t actually played much. Only one goal, which was scored against Copenhagen, was scored by him in his meager 19 appearances for the Spanish squad across all leagues.
For a player who had so much potential when he joined the team, it was a disappointing result, especially when compared to his 53 goals in 353 appearances at Real Madrid.
The midfielder left Madrid for free after his long-term contract at the Bernabeu expired.
While playing for Los Blancos, Isco won five Champions League medals, three LaLiga titles, and four Club World Cups.
