Isco Alarcón is already a new Betis player. The man from Malaga passed the medical examination and signed his new contract, which will join the Verdiblanca entity for one season.
As reported by MARCA this Wednesday, the midfielder from Arroyo de la Miel had become Betis’ number one target to reinforce their midfield after Sergio Canales left for Mexico. The coach Manuel Pellegrini had insisted a lot on signing him.
Betis already considered his incorporation in the last winter market, when he terminated his contract with his eternal rival, Sevilla. However, he was ruled out due to salary cap issues. Pellegrini had been insisting for a long time on a player whom he already had under his orders at Málaga. The Chilean is convinced that he is recoverable to be back at a high level.
And now is when all the conditions have been met to be able to carry out an already closed signing. There was a free gap with the departure of Canales and the footballer has greatly lowered his salary from him to make it possible. He will have a fixed low for what was his cache and another part in variables. Isco’s predisposition has helped a lot.
Isco becomes the sixth reinforcement for the squad, after those of Ayoze Pérez, Marc Roca, Héctor Bellerín, Marc Bartra, and Chadi Riad.
No time to waste
As soon as his signing was finalized, Isco placed himself under the orders of Pellegrini. The man from Malaga went to the Ciudad Deportiva Luis del Sol, where the group was waiting for him for the classic engineer’s talk. And after these words from the coach to his footballers, Isco has been received with the classic ‘corridor’ of welcome. Juanmi, Marc Roca, Bartra, Guardado, Borja Iglesias, Bellerín, and Ruibal supported the former Real Madrid player throughout the session.
