Nacho ready to retire at Real Madrid

Real Madrid defender Nacho revealed that negotiations to extend his commitment at Santiago Bernabeu for the long term are almost over as he hopes to retire with Los Blancos.

His future was threatened when he failed to penetrate the first team of Carlo Ancelotti when the Italian coach took office in the giant La Liga.

Nacho was heavily linked with AS Roma but finally decided to stay in Madrid where he became a crucial player for Zinedine Zidane.

The serbabisa defender became the fourth center back after Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Pepe but still managed to chalk up 39 appearances throughout last season.

The 27-year-old has a natural position as a central defender but is also able to perform as a right-back and a left-back for the absence of Dani Carvajal and Marcelo.

“My contract extension is as planned. It’s almost over. I am very happy here and hope to retire in Madrid costume, “Nacho told local media.
