In Germany the frustrated signing of Isco Alarcón by Union Berlin continues to give rise to talk. Two days after the operation broke down in the final stretch of the winter market, despite the fact that the player had already passed the relevant medical tests, the German newspaper “Bild” has revealed all the details that led to the break between the player and club. As always, the economic aspect was key when blowing up the arrival of malagueNo to the historic Berlin club.
Always according to Bild, The Gestifute agency, chaired by Jorge Mendes, received the draft of the contract this past Monday and was informed that the player would not be included in the Europa League list (the deadline to do so expired on Thursday) until his physical condition was known. . The footballer himself received this information during the medical examination carried out on Tuesday, a few hours before the market closed, at which point everything went wrong.
Isco demanded more
It was then that, as club sources take it for granted, Isco’s side began to demand more than previously agreed. Initially, the club and player reached an agreement for a year-and-a-half contract with a gross salary of more than one million euros plus a transfer bonus of around one and a half million. In addition, the Union agreed to include a termination clause for the second year, but did not agree to pay a second premium of 1.5 kilos for the second season, something that had not been previously agreed.
Hence, Oliver Ruhnert, manager of the second classified in the Bundesliga, was quoted in a press release as follows: “We would have liked to have Isco with us, but we have our limits. Today they have been exceeded, contrary to what was previously agreed, so the signing will not take place ”. Isco himself limited himself to saying that they were “things that happen in football.”
