Inter Milan target, Nacho has decided to stay with Real Madrid.

This has, therefore, ended the speculation surroundings his future at the Bernabeu.
The Spanish defender will stay in the capital despite the reported strong interest from Simone Inzaghi and Inter in recent weeks.

According to reports, the 33-year-old defender was in talks with the Nerazzurri over a potential three-year deal upon the expiry of his contract with Madrid this summer. The deal would have been worth somewhere in the region of €4m in terms of annual wages.

Since Nacho’s current contract will expire at the end of June, he is, therefore, able to leave on a free transfer. But the player told the Spanish media, TVE 1, on Sunday that he intends to stay on at the Santiago Bernabeu. This, according to him, is because his will aligns with that of the club and his family.

“There are always offers, but I have decided to stay in Madrid. I’m very happy about it,” he added.
Tuttomercato also reported that an official announcement from the club is now practically a formality.
It was reported that Nacho will sign a one-year extension at Madrid, which will also see him take home around €4m per season.

He is likely to be the next Captain since former skipper, Karim Benzema has left for Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia last week.

Nacho had served as Madrid’s vice-captain this season. He is therefore expected to take over the armband for 2023-24.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan will be on the lookout for a replacement in their defense for departing defender Milan Skriniar.
The centre-back is reportedly planning to join French giant, Paris Sainte-Germaine, which had wanted him last summer.
He will now have an opportunity to join the Ligue 1 champions as a free agent as his current deal expires in July, having declared in January that he had signed with the Paris club.

The Nerazurri had wanted to at least get 20m Euros from his sales in January but couldn’t get a replacement, letting him run down his contract.
