Nacho Fernandez has been everything Real Madrid could ask of a defender. The Spanish international has been committed to the badge with his all and is one of, if not the most professional player at the club.

The defender’s contract runs out in June after which he will be able to depart as a free agent. Los Blancos wish for him to stay as they see him as an integral member of the squad, but the renewal does not appear close to materialising.

While Nacho has admitted to being comfortable at the Spanish club, the fact of the matter is that he is not entirely pleased with his minor role in the team. At 33 years of age, he does not have much time left in his career and wishes to make the most of it by playing as a regular starter.

That dream cannot be a reality at Real Madrid. In David Alaba, Eder Militao and Antonio Rudiger, the competition is just too steep for Nacho to fight. An exit, thus, looks likely.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, the centre-back has no shortage of options on his table. Nacho has several suitors in the MLS who assure him of a prominent role on the field. If he chooses to stay in Europe, Inter Milan stands as a likely destination given the Nerazzuri’s interest in his profile.

The 33-year-old has started 17 La Liga games for Real Madrid this season out of the 24 he has participated in. Yet, many of those encounters have seen him deployed as a full-back as opposed to his conventional preference of the centre-back position.

Nacho has overseen seven clean sheets for Real Madrid in the league this year and averages over six defensive actions per game. Further, he has scored one goal and provided one assist.

Real Madrid hope to resolve the future of Nacho as well as Dani Ceballos in the coming week and it remains to be seen what the defender decides with regard to his future.
