Nacho Fernandez is back on the Roma radar after Real Madrid paid €50m for Eder Militao, according to Spanish paper AS.
The 29-year-old central defender had already been close to a Giallorossi transfer last summer.
Even though director of sport Monchi has since moved on, Roma are still interested in bringing Nacho to the Stadio Olimpico.
This is an excellent opportunity to take advantage, because Real Madrid have just spent big to bring in Eder Militao from FC Porto.
That will limit Nacho’s playing time next season and his contract is due to expire in June 2020, so a summer sale is on the cards.
He spent his entire career at Real Madrid, making his way through their youth academy, but could be tempted to try a new experience in Serie A.
