Isco may continue his career in Brazil. UOL Esporte reports that Flamengo has made an offer of half a million euros a month to the Spaniard, who is clubless after his departure from Seville at the end of December last year. Isco has now inquired with ex-teammate Marcelo, who is playing in Brazil again after an adventure at Olympiacos.

Until the end of January, it looked like Isco would join Union Berlin, where he could sign until mid-2024 with an option for an extra season. The now thirty-year-old midfielder had already been medically examined and nothing seemed to stand in the way of a transition, but the transfer did not take place. Isco’s management and the German club blamed each other for the ricochet. According to Union, the playmaker came up with new conditions at the last minute.

Since the deal fell through, Isco has not yet found a new club. However, he has aroused interest from Real Betis and Villarreal, after which Los Angeles Galaxy also joined the list of interested clubs. Still, Flamengo seems to be Isco’s new destination at the moment. The holder of the Copa Libertadores has submitted a contract proposal of half a million euros per month to Isco, which equates to an annual salary of six million euros.

Isco played for Real Madrid for years, where he won many prizes with former teammate Marcelo. The latter now plays for Fluminense, which, like Flamengo, comes from Rio de Janeiro. According to UOL Esporte Isco contacted his ex-teammate to find out about life in the city and Brazil. Isco expects the South American country to be an attractive destination for him and his family.
