Isco has been a free agent since leaving Sevilla in December

Free agent Isco is in talks with Konyaspor after failing to complete a move to Union Berlin, the Turkish club’s vice president Mehmet Akcan has revealed.

Isco, released by Sevilla in December after just four months at the club, looked set to face a new challenge in Berlin as he reportedly completed a medical with Union.

However, the 30-year-old’s move to the Bundesliga side fell through on Tuesday due to personaaaaaaaal issues, with both parties blaming each other.

Former Real Madrid midfielder Isco may now have found another club, as discussions are ongoing with Super Lig side Konyaspor.

“That’s true. We are in the process of negotiating with Isco,” Akcan was quoted as saying by Spanish media AS.

“I can tell you that the dialogue went well. We’re not sure yet if we’ve reached an agreement, otherwise we’ll say so publicly.

“We are doing everything possible to close the signing. We have until January 8, but I think everything will be finalized as soon as possible.

“Now we have the opportunity to close the signing and are positive about doing so.”

Isco began his career with spells at Valencia and Malaga before spending nine years with Madrid, whom he left at the end of last season for a brief stint with Sevilla.

He made 19 appearances for Sevilla in the first half of the season, scoring one goal and providing three assists, but his contract was terminated together six weeks ago.

Serie A heavyweights Juventus and Napoli have previously been linked with the Spain international who has 38 caps, while Konyaspor’s league rivals Fenerbahce are also reportedly interested.

Konyaspor are eighth in Turkey’s top flight, 13 points adrift of the European places.

Isco’s former Sevilla team-mate, Adnan Januzaj, has also confirmed his move to Turkey.

The winger, who joined the club on a free transfer in August, has joined Istanbul Basaksehir on loan until the end of the season after making just six appearances.
