According to a report from Radio Marca, Nacho will remain at Real Madrid for another year, as the club and their captain have come to an agreement to extend his stay.

Earlier, there were reports suggesting that Nacho was ready to leave the club he has called home for his entire career to start a new chapter in Major League Soccer (MLS).

However, his departure from Real Madrid’s first team has not been officially confirmed yet, unlike Toni Kroos’s exit, which was announced earlier this week.

Nacho still considering his options

It is said that Nacho is still considering whether to end his long tenure at Real Madrid, where he has been since he was very young.

A few days ago, it seemed certain that he had decided to move to MLS. Apart from that, he also had offers coming in from Saudi Arabia, but his heart was set on moving to the States.

But the reality is that he is still undecided about whether to leave or stay with the club for another season. This season, Nacho made his debut as Madrid’s first team captain and has led the team to win two titles: the Spanish Super Cup and the League.

In addition to interest from MLS, Nacho has received offers from European clubs, with Serie A team Inter Milan particularly keen on signing him.

Until recently, it seemed almost certain that Nacho would leave Real Madrid. His representatives were actively working on securing his next move, with a strong inclination towards a club in the United States.

However, in a turn of events, the experienced defender has chosen to stay with Real Madrid for one more year and it is said that manager Carlo Ancelotti is very pleased with his decision to remain with the team.

    What’s happening to Madrid? It’s time to move on and look towards the future by signing younger players. Defensively, Madrid overachieved and the record is misleading because the isn’t really that good. Madrid got away with some games because the opponents were wasteful in front of the goal. I hope they still bring back Rafa and Miguel or sign Yoro and Davis.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
