Nacho to sign new deal with Merengues
Nacho has made 430 appearances in total for Real Madrid and the club’s second team Real Madrid Castilla. It is seen as quite a late move from Real Madrid bosses, who seemed destined to let their veteran leave the club once his contract expired this month.
But according to Romano, Nacho has informed Serie A giants Inter Milan of his desire to stay at his hometown club and is set to become the new club captain for next season, following the departure of star striker Karim Benzema.
