Real Madrid defender apprehensive about contract renewal amid interest from England, Italy

Nacho Fernandez has always had a love affair with Real Madrid. Despite not being the headline player for Los Blancos, the defender has always given his all for the team and has never complained about his role in the side.

At the age of 32, the Spaniard has featured in almost 300 matches for Real Madrid. And with his current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expiring at the end of the season, the club are keen on renewing his contract for one more year.

However, things have changed lately, as far as Nacho is concerned. Although the defender has never historically complained about his status in the team, the summer arrival of Antonio Rudiger, to an extent, has left him on the sidelines a bit too much than usual.

To put things into perspective, Nacho has earned only one start in La Liga so far and has fallen behind Rudiger, Eder Militao and David Alaba in the pecking order, thus leaving him frustrated.

As such, Nacho has shown no desire to extend his contract at Real Madrid so far and could be considering a move elsewhere, reports SPORT.

The player has been a subject of interest for many clubs across Europe, with Aston Villa manager Unai Emery, in particular, being a huge admirer of the defender.

Emery had tried to sign Nacho during his time at Villarreal, and he may do the same having returned to England recently.

Emery is not the only party interested in Nacho, though, with the 32-year-old also being targeted by Italian giants AS Roma and AC Milan. Portuguese club SL Benfica are also monitoring the veteran.

With time running out, this is the time for Real Madrid to convince Nacho by giving him a greater role in the first-team setup if they are to keep hold of the veteran.
