Isco’s Madrid fee in instalments

Marca has revealed that the fee Real Madrid have agreed with Malaga for midfielder Isco is to be paid in instalments.

After some intense negotiations Los Blancos are set to pay a fixed €24m in three stages with a further €3m in add-ons.

These favourable conditions were part of the reason Madrid move swiftly to secure the signature of the 21-year-old, with the player himself due to net €2-million-a-season in wages, although this makes him one of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad’s lowest earners.

Even so, the deal provides the opportunity for Isco, who will wear the No 23 shirt, to increase his salary in each of the next five years if he fulfils a series of performance-related objectives.
