Real Madrid veteran Nacho Fernandez set to join MLS

Nacho Fernandez, a stalwart of Real Madrid, has announced his departure from the club, with the MLS set as his next footballing destination.

According to a report by MARCA, despite tempting offers elsewhere, the seasoned defender is opting for a new challenge across the Atlantic in America.

Fernandez's decision has been brewing throughout the season, with his determination to seek a fresh adventure overriding any inclination to prolong his stay at Real Madrid. The MLS emerges as his chosen path, shunning potentially more lucrative offers for the allure of North American football.

Having flirted with the idea of leaving last season, Fernandez, 34, remained, but this time, his resolve is unwavering. 

The captain's armband, inherited following Benzema's departure, has been worn with distinction, adding silverware to his collection and keeping dreams of Champions League glory alive.

Throughout the campaign, Fernandez's commitment has never wavered. Recognizing that the circumstances weren't conducive to another season in Madrid, he now embarks on a new chapter across the pond, spurred on by recent Champions League experiences, including a perplexing substitution in Munich.

Money isn't the driving force behind Fernandez's move. While lucrative offers from Saudi clubs and European suitors beckoned, his desire for a different footballing experience prevails, leading him to the MLS.

Inter Milan's interest last season hinted at potential European options, but Fernandez's change of heart scuppered any move to Serie A. Instead, the allure of American soccer has proven irresistible.

As he bids farewell to the Santiago Bernabeu, Fernandez's professionalism remains unwavering, his dedication to giving his all until the final whistle a testament to his character. While his playing days in Madrid may be numbered, his bond with the club will endure, even from afar.
