Real Madrid veteran already has a renewal offer, no ‘expiry date’ on the proposal

According to reports from El Larguero, Nacho Fernandez has a renewal offer from Real Madrid on the table. Unlike the deal the club offered Sergio Ramos a few years ago, it has no deadline or expiry date.

With the defender, the Merengues have decided to stop putting deadlines on renewal offers for players aged over 30. The ball now lies in his court and any developments must spring from his end.

The report adds that Los Blancos really admire Nacho’s professionalism and dedication to the badge. They see him as the perfect example of how to live like a Real Madrid player. The Spanish champions wish to reward that love and loyalty to the club at any cost.

The Spanish defender spoke openly about his dismay at how he was being treated early in the season when he sat low on the pecking order.

Yet, the mental block did not affect his performance on the field and he soon became the first-choice replacement for any injury in the defensive line.

In recent weeks, his primary role has been to cover at left-back for Ferland Mendy and occasionally make a cameo in central defence. He was on target in the 2-0 win over Cadiz last weekend and came on as a substitute in the club’s recent 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The 33-year-old’s contract at Santiago Bernabeu ends in the summer and an agreement to renew seems to be close. The only factor that poses a hurdle, however, is the fact that Nacho is not assured a starting spot for next season and will have to continue as a super substitute.

Nacho has made 19 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process. Further, he has overseen five clean sheets and averages over six defensive actions per game.

‘We will see’ – PSG manager coy on Kylian Mbappe’s future

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
