Real Madrid and Nacho will sign a new contract this summer, one which will increase the salary of the defender up to €4 million, according to a report from MARCA.

Nacho has been a relevant player for Real Madrid ever since Pepe left the club. He has been a key player for Zinedine Zidane and will keep having minutes now that Julen Lopetegui is the coach. Nacho is 28 years old and it looks like he could stay in Madrid for many years unless he decides to be a starter elsewhere.

His ability to play as a right-back, central-defender and left-back makes him one of the most useful players on Madrid’s current roster. Furthermore, he has also improved his performances over the last few seasons and it’s now clear that he’s a great team player. Nacho has earned this raise and the club will make it official this summer, per that same report from MARCA.
