Isco will sign a two-year deal with the option of another at the Benito Villamarin to earn in excess of €10m gross per season.
He’ll join on a free transfer when his contract expires at the Santiago Bernabeu and will become the highest-earning player in the history of the club.
As for a potential sale, the two most likely candidates are Argentine defensive midfielder Guido Rodriguez and creative lynchpin Nabil Fekir. Both are protected by long contracts.
If the deal is confirmed, Isco will become Betis’ third signing ahead of the 2022/23 season.
The Brazilian duo of Luiz Felipe and Luiz Henrique will both arrive in the summer from Lazio and Fluminense.
