Real Madrid’s defensive sector could lose an element in the coming weeks. Nacho Fernández is getting closer to a move to MLS.
This is one of Real Madrid’s priority projects this winter. The Spanish giant will have to attack the extension of the contract of its executives. Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos or even Marco Asensio… all are coming to the end of their contract next June. The Madrid leaders, who do not wish to lose their key players, have already started negotiations to renew their respective leases. And that’s not all, Real Madrid also intends to extend a long-time defender, in the person of Nacho Fernández. Except that the discussions with the Spanish international did not start under the best auspices.
Real Madrid Mercato: Nacho Fernandez received a concrete
Nacho Fernández saw his future at Real Madrid darken with the arrival ofAntonio Rudiger, who quickly established himself in the center of defence. Consequently, coach Carlo Ancelotti no longer used the native of Madrid as he had done last season. The 32-year-old must now be content with a status of simple substitute within the merengue workforce. Aware that it will be difficult for him to reverse the trend, the principal concerned would not be against the idea of taking up a new challenge under other skies. Especially since it is not the suitors who are lacking to welcome him.
According to information from the AS newspaper, Nacho Hernandez has already received an important offer from an MLS (Major League Soccer) franchise, whose identity has not yet been revealed. This American proposal could well precipitate the departure of the player whose contract expires in June 2024 with Real. This would represent a great opportunity for him to take up one last big challenge before hanging up his crampons. The idea of his transfer from the opening of the winter transfer window would even be mentioned internally. However, the main interested party gives himself some time to think before deciding definitively for the rest of his career.
