Nacho Fernandez to sign new Real Madrid contract

Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez is set to sign a new contract at the club, according to a report in Marca.

Back in March, the long-serving Spaniard was linked with a move to Italian club Roma with reports since claiming he could now be edging towards a move away.

The versatile defender had been heavily linked with a move to the Giallorossi last summer, but no transfer came to fruition, and sporting director Monchi has since left the Italian capital club.

Nacho’s current contract at the outgoing European champions is set to expire next summer but the fresh report claims he will extend this by a further 12 months until 2021.

The 29-year-old has made a total of 190 first-team appearances for Los Blancos, where he played for the entirety of his career, netting a total of nine goals.

Madrid splashed out €50m to bring in defender Eder Militao from FC Porto for this summer, leading to doubts on Nacho’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid are set to undergo an overhaul in their playing staff this summer after a hugely underwhelming campaign.
