Nacho wants MLS move after Real Madrid summer exit

Nacho reportedly wants to complete a move to Major League Soccer in the summer transfer window after leaving Real Madrid.

According to a report by Spanish outlet MARCA, Nacho wants to leave Real Madrid as a free agent in the summer transfer window. The 34-year-old wants to embark on a new adventure in the final phase of his career. And he has picked Major League Soccer as his ideal destination amid suggestions of a Saudi Pro League move.

Nacho and his intriguing career

Nacho has been a superb backup option for Real Madrid for over a decade. While he has never been the first-choice defender in any position in the backline, his ability to produce reliable performances whenever he receives an opportunity is remarkable.

In addition, Nacho’s versatility has made him an asset for every manager, as he can play across the backline with equal adeptness. Meanwhile, he has become the Real Madrid captain this term after the departure of Karim Benzema last summer. The 34-year-old has turned out over 350 times thus far for Real Madrid, chipping in with 16 goals and nine assists while seeing red only four times.

Nacho’s consistency and dependability have meant that the Merengues have not dipped their toes in the market for different solutions. However, the Spaniard faces an uncertain future at Real Madrid after entering the final three months of his contract.

Set to leave Real Madrid?

The most recent update has provided a blow to Real Madrid’s hopes of retaining Nacho’s services. The 24-cap Spanish international has informed Los Blancos that he wants to leave the club and embark on a new adventure in the summer transfer window. And he has now decided his ideal destination.

Amid links of a potential move to the Saudi Pro League, Nacho wants to join a Major League Soccer club. The MLS has seen an influx of players from European leagues since its inception, with last summer heralding the arrival of Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba.

While the veteran Spanish defender is not a glamorous name, he can be a top-class addition to any MLS club’s squad. It will be interesting to see if the 34-year-old gets his wish in the coming weeks, with his stint with Real Madrid likely ending soon.
