Isco unwanted by Sevilla claims director of football Monchi.
The Spanish midfielder has hardly featured for Los Blancos and made only three La Liga starts this season.
Isco reportedly was on the verge of joining Sevilla in the January window but a move failed to materialise for the Spanish international.
Sevilla’s sporting director Monchi revealed that the club had no intention of signing the Real Madrid outcast.
Monchi told Estadio Deportivo: “The conversation lasted approximately 15 or 20 seconds. It is news that has come out, he asked me and I said no, that was all the interest in Isco.
“We do not live in a basement and read things, but I talk to the president or vice-president on a day-to-day basis, and there are things that jump out and the president asks me if that is true and I say ‘Yes, yes, I have not told you’, but it is not the case with Isco.
“It is a rumour, a logical rumour, because he wants to leave and here is a coach with who he played at a high level, but there is absolutely nothing, not a movement.”
Asked if Sevilla might pursue Isco in the summer, Monchi said: “Fortunately in that position we have very interesting players. It is one of the positions on the pitch about which we can be calmer. In the positions that Isco can play, we have players here that will give us good performances.”
