Vini insisted that Nacho Fernandez is more ‘Madridista’ than anyone he has ever had the opportunity to meet.

The Brazilian sensation wrote: “Nacheteeee, mi Capitan!!! It’s been a pleasure to play with you all these years.”

“You’re more Madridista than anyone I’ve ever seen. Thanks for everything! You are an amazing person who deserves everything you have earned and so much more! I wish you all the best in your new stage! LEADER and EXAMPLE.”

In addition to his club success, Nacho also found glory with the Spanish national team, winning the U-21 European Championship and the Nations League.

Nacho Fernandez’s next club

At first, Nacho Fernandez had a strong desire to relocate to the USA, but ultimately, the tempting offer from Saudi Arabian club Al-Qadsiah proved to be too lucrative for him to reject.

As it stands, he is set to pocket a reported €20m throughout a two-year contract following his potential move to Saudi Arabia.
