Nacho Fernández had the opportunity to leave Real Madrid in the Winter transfer window but he decided to finish the season at ‘Los Blancos’. The club showing more interest on the defender was Roma and the ‘Giallorossi’ club is back to fight for the defender.
Antonio Rüdiger, Roma defender, got injured this week with a serious problem in his knee. He will miss the Euro with Germany and cannot start the next season with Roma. For this reason, the team is looking for a replacement and Nacho is the favourite one.
Luciano Spalletti’s team had several problems in the defence line last season and should improve these positions if they want to reach the group stage in the Champions League. Rudiger and Manolas were the full backs last season and, with the German born ruled out, the team needs another defender.
Nacho Fernández didn’t have a lot of minutes last season with Zidane and will be again the fourth full back in the squad. Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Raphael Varane will fight for the two positions in the line up and Nacho will only play when one of them are ruled out.
The 26-year-old defender can think on having more minutes and an European big squad. Roma will play the Champions League next season and they always fight for the Scudetto title, despite not winning it.
Del Bosque didn’t call Nacho for the Spanish squad for the Euro due to this lack of minutes at Real Madrid. If Nacho wants to play in the national team he could think that leaving Real Madrid will give him more chances.
From the Real Madrid’s perspective, Nacho could be sold. This summer, Diego Llorente will come back after his loan in Rayo Vallecano. Llorente could be the perfect replacement in the squad for Nacho.
