Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi were at the top of European football for many years, but last year, they surprised many as they both went abroad. First was Ronaldo, who went to Saudi Arabia to join Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League. Then, last summer, Messi left PSG to join Inter Miami in the MLS in the United States. Now, a Real Madrid captain will be leaving Europe soon as well, which many did not expect, especially after winning another Champions League trophy with the Spanish club. Nacho Fernandez is set to leave Real Madrid as he is not planning to renew his contract with the Champions League winners, and he could be playing in Saudi Arabia next season. L'Équipe reports that Nacho is now close to joining Al Qadsiah. The negotiations are considered very advanced, and the Spanish defender could play in the Saudi Pro League.

Nacho's contract with Real Madrid expires on June 30th, and it will expire since the defender is in EURO 2024 with the Spanish national team. The Spanish defender was linked to a move away from Real Madrid for a while, and Saudi Arabia was his likely destination. A few weeks ago, Nacho was very close to joining Al Ittihad, but the deal seems to be getting complicated.

Fabrizio Romano reported that Al Ittihad was in advanced talks to sign Nacho as a free agent from Real Madrid. A few days ago, Romano reported that doubts about Nacho's move to Al Ittihad were serious. Both the player and club have still not proceeded with the green light despite advanced talks on a two-year deal. Now it looks likely that Nacho will join Al Qadsiah instead, who is a newly promoted club in the Saudi Pro League.

Nacho was also interested in joining the MLS

Nacho was close to joining Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, and he was also close to joining Messi in the United States. A month ago, Relevo reported that Messi's Inter Miami was interested in signing Nacho this summer. Nacho was reportedly considering a move to the US since he was open to looking for love away from Real Madrid.
