This Clásico will be the last that many Real Madrid players will play in hostile territory. Because there are various pieces of the squad who have decided to leave in the summer, and therefore will not experience this type of confrontation against Barça again. To make matters worse, they will not be able to play at the Camp Nou, which is still in the process of being remodeled, and will have to do so at the Montjuic Olympic Stadium. And among those affected is Nacho Fernández.
The captain’s stage is very close to ending, after a lifetime wearing white. It cannot be considered a particularly surprising caseseeing the little impact it has had on the plans of Carlo Ancelotti in recent campaigns, playing only in case of extreme necessity. Since it arrived Antonio Rüdiger, became the last option in the rotations for the rearguard axis, and this season, not even the serious injury of Eder Militao It has helped him have more participation.
He has been a regular substitute, despite the irregularity of David Alaba, and this has caused the Spanish international’s patience to completely run out. He is not willing to continue at the Santiago Bernabéu, and he prefers to live out his last years in the elite in another team where they guarantee more continuity. So right now he is not even considering signing a new contract.and therefore he will leave in the month of June, with the letter of freedom under his arm.
Florentino Pérez already knows the intentions of the ‘6’, who has been in charge of passing them on personally, and will not interfere. In fact, the president did not plan to offer a new contract to Nacho either, as he believes that the perfect time has come for him to leave Madrid, and to make room in the squad for a younger player, with his entire career ahead of him. In this sense, There has been speculation about the arrival of a new signing, or the return of Rafa Marín after his loan to Alavés.
It is not known who will occupy Fernández’s place, but what there is absolute certainty about is that he will say goodbye in 2024, after more than a decade in the first team uninterruptedly.
