According to Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Nacho Fernandez will sign a new one-year contract with Real Madrid as soon as a formal offer is tabled in front of him by the club.

The 33-year-old is in the final few months of his contract with Real Madrid and has been mulling over his future. The versatile defender, who can play anywhere across the backline, had admitted his disappointment about not playing regularly in the early parts of the season.

But that has changed in recent months, with Nacho becoming a staple in Carlo Ancelotti’s starting XI, be it at right-back, left-back, or centre-back. And the seasoned veteran has delivered on the faith shown by putting in solid shifts.

It earned Nacho a spot in the Spanish national team under new manager Luis de la Fuente after his long exile during the Luis Enrique era.

As for his future at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have always maintained that they will offer him a contract renewal for one more year.

It had previously been reported that the defender was pondering over his next move due to the lack of game-time. With that no longer being a concern, Nacho is understood to be ready to sign the new deal, as soon as an offer is presented to him.

The report from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin adds that the Spanish international has a three-year contract offer from abroad. But he is believed to have told club president Florentino Perez that he is ready to stay for one more year so long as an offer is made by the Merengues.

A product of the Real Madrid youth academy, Nacho is one of the few one-club men in the modern era of football. Whether that continues beyond this season remains to be seen.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
