The eagerly awaited transfer of the five-time Champions League winner Isco to the Bundesliga club Union Berlin does not materialize.

This was confirmed by Union Managing Director Oliver Ruhnert on Tuesday afternoon.

'We would have liked to see Isco with us, but we have our limits.

Contrary to the previous agreements, these were exceeded today, which is why the transfer did not take place," said Ruhnert.

The clubless 30-year-old playmaker Isco had already been spotted in the morning at the medical check-up in the capital.

Apparently, a contract until 2024 was under discussion. But when the last details were clarified, both sides obviously could not agree.

There is also disagreement about the assessment of the process.

But not to Berlin

The "Bild" newspaper quotes Isco's consulting agency Gestifute: "In the course of the talks, we had to realize that our negotiating partner was no longer willing to move within the framework originally discussed."

Isco was trained at FC Valencia and came to Real Madrid via FC Malaga.

He made 353 appearances for Los Blancos between 2013 and 2022.

He scored 53 goals and 57 assists.

He was under contract with FC Sevilla for four months until December.

He would have been Union's most notable addition in club history.

The transfer window in Germany closes at 6 p.m., but free players like Isco can still be signed afterwards.
