Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui admits he remains a fan of Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
The Spain international is expected to leave Real this summer and is being linked with Sevilla.
Asked about Isco, Lopetegui said: “I’m only talking about the players who are from Sevilla. He’s a great footballer and I don’t hide my admiration for Isco.”
Lopetegui, who has guided Sevilla within striking distance of LaLiga leaders Real Madrid, was linked with Manchester United after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.
He added: “I hope it sees me until 2024 at Sevilla. There have been times, this summer, when there was something but we decided to stay.”
On the title, Lopetegui said: “In the end I am convinced that Barça will be very high, Atlético too, Villarreal is having a great second round… Betis is holding up very well. Winning each game is an adventure, for everyone in the Spanish Liga.
“We have the illusion of the Europa League. West Ham has drawn us, which is the most complete team that was in the pot.”
