Serie A heavyweights Inter Milan are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid veteran Nacho in a Bosman move this summer.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Nacho is the subject of interest from Inter Milan. The veteran Spanish defender might leave Real Madrid as a free agent in the summer transfer window. And the Serie A giants want to complete a Bosman move for the experienced centre-back.
Nacho has enjoyed a legendary career at the club level despite never being a first-choice centre-back. The 33-year-old has been with Real Madrid for over two decades. And he rose through the ranks in La Fabrica before making his first-team debut in April 2011. Since then, he has been a dependable performer for Real Madrid.
The Spanish international has turned out over 300 times for Real Madrid, chipping in with 15 goals and nine assists. But Nacho’s long-term Real Madrid future is uncertain, as he is in the final months of his contract. And such a situation has captured the attention of several clubs, including Inter Milan.
Inter Milan will lose Milan Skriniar in the summer transfer window. The Serie A giants have been desperate to tie the Slovak to a new contract in the last few months. But Skriniar showed no interest in extending his stint with the Nerazzurri. And he will likely join Paris Saint-Germain in a Bosman move in the summer transfer window.
In addition, Stefan de Vrij’s future is also uncertain, with the Dutchman yet to sign a new contract. And the experienced defender’s situation has alerted several clubs, including Newcastle United. So it behoves Inter Milan to delve into the market for a centre-back in the summer transfer window. And Nacho has emerged as a viable target.
The Real Madrid veteran is at loggerheads with Los Blancos over the terms of a new contract. And he wants a two-year deal, while the Merengues only want to offer a one-year extension. Such a situation gives Inter Milan the impetus to launch the offensive for him.
Meanwhile, several centre-backs, including Malick Thiaw, are on Real Madrid’s radar. But it will be interesting to see if they can secure Nacho’s future and keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu beyond the summer transfer window. For now, Serie A giants Inter Milan are keen on the veteran.
