Transfer market specialist Fabrizio Romano has reported that Real Madrid defender Nacho has been approached by Major League Soccer and clubs from Saudi Arabia with offers to join them once the season concludes. 

The journalist suggests that although Nacho is likely to depart Real Madrid as a free agent, he is adamant about not remaining in Europe, particularly not in Spain. Presently, he is contemplating options from both MLS and Saudi clubs.

The end of an era

The possibility of Nacho leaving Real Madrid marks the end of an era for him at the club, having joined the team at the tender age of 11. 

He has been a vital player for quite some time now, thanks to his ability to play in various positions and his unwavering dedication. But it appears he is ready for new adventures beyond Europe.

The MLS presents an increasingly competitive platform, offering Nacho the chance to contribute to soccer’s growth in the United States. 

Alternatively, Saudi clubs offer a different environment, with a budding football scene and a culture that’s still developing.

Romano has shed light on the situation, revealing that negotiations are ongoing and a decision is imminent in the next few weeks. 

Should Nacho leave, Real Madrid would bid farewell to a seasoned and adaptable player. However, his departure would create space for fresh faces and reinforcements in the squad.

Nacho has already decided on his next destination

Before the big Champions League final, club president Florentino Perez plans to have discussions with Nacho, Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric. 

The aim is to sort out any issues swiftly, ensuring the team stays focused on the upcoming match against Borussia Dortmund.

It seems highly likely that Nacho, who has dedicated 23 years to Real Madrid, will bid farewell. Despite receiving numerous offers, reports suggest Nacho has made up his mind not to continue playing in Europe or to join the lucrative Saudi League. 

Instead, he has set his sights on a new adventure in the United States for the next phase of his career.

While there is plenty of speculation about what lies ahead for him, concrete decisions will only be revealed after the Champions League final on June 1st

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
