Defender Nacho have extended his Real Madrid contract through to the summer of 2023.
However the questions continue to be asked of Raphael Varane’s future at Santiago Bernabeu.
A 31-year-old centre-half has agreed to prolong his association with the Blancos, with a home-grown talent remaining a one-club man.
That is good news for Real as they are left sweating on the options that Carlo Ancelotti will have to pick from at the heart of his back four in 2021-22.
“Real Madrid C. F. and Nacho Fernandez have reached an agreement to extend the player’s contract,”
“The deal that ties him to the club for the next two seasons and until 30 June 2023.”
Real Madrid deal for Nacho
Nacho was previously tied to terms until 2022, but has seen that agreement extended by a further 12 months.
As an experienced member of the Blancos squad, he will have an important role to play heading forward.
A product of Real’s famed academy system has taken in 233 appearances for the club so far, with two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns claimed along the way.
Nacho has not always been a guaranteed starter amid fierce competition for places and injury issues, but that situation may be about to change.
