Lopetegui wants Nacho to lead the defense of his Sevilla

He transferred the request to Monchi, but the signing is very difficult: the pretensions of Madrid and the player's record do not fit in the economy of the Nervión club.

Julen Lopetegui has landed at Sevilla with the intention of strengthening the Andalusian team to assault next season the classification for the Champions League. And in that attempt wants the technician of Asteasu to take control of a central of first level that gives him flight to the rear of Nervión: the chosen one of Lopetegui is Nacho Fernández. The central one of Real Madrid is very of the taste of that was also a white trainer and so he has let know to Monchi, sports director of Sevilla.

Lopetegui already demonstrated in the past his predilection for Nacho: was a very usual player in the calls of the Selection in the 2016-2018 section, playing many minutes and entering in the call for the World Cup in Russia; He also gave the Alcalá enough ball in the 14 games he led at Madrid, lining him up in 63% of the minutes.

The versatility of Nacho, able to play in the four positions of the defense, and his usual regularity in performance they make him very attractive for Julen, in addition to his experience in the elite: he has won, among other things, a League and four Champions League with the shirt of Madrid. In addition, Nacho could coincide in Sevilla with Juanvi Peinado, who went through the white quarry and trained his brother Alex, today in Cádiz, both in cadet and in youth. The already ex-second of Iriondo in Rayo Majadahonda worked with Nacho in the stage of Lopetegui in Castilla, despite the fact that the center was part of Real Madrid C (third team eliminated by Florentino at the end of 2014-15). Hairstyle will be part of the technical staff of Lopetegui as assistant, although Pablo Sanz will remain the second of the Basque trainer.

Nacho also has an unbeatable opinion of Lopetegui, as already made clear during the stage of the coach in Madrid. With Julen on the tightrope after several missteps, the central defender came out in his defense without reservations: "I want to continue, the fault is everyone because we are a team." After the cessation and after the arrival of Solari, Nacho redoubled the bet: " For me he is one of the best coaches I have had in my career, I want to wish him all the luck in the world and wherever he goes he will make it very safe" .

But the operation would have enormous economic difficulties: the pretensions of the white club (at least 30 million euros) are far above of what Sevilla can pay for a player close to 30 years (he meets in January 2020 ); and also the salary of Nacho, which improved during this last season although it has not yet been done official act of renewal, tampoco fits well in the sevillista salary scale. The signing would require a great effort on the part of the player and Madrid and there an added difficulty: Sevilla does not play Champions League this year, which reduces its economic capacity and its appeal for players.

Nacho has interest from several teams in Italy (Inter, Rome, Naples ...), although Zidane transmitted at the end of the course that has for the next season despite the arrival of Militao, so Vallejo would be the central with more options to exit. Although from the club, as reported by the Cope Network, it would be preferable to remove Nacho to salary salary . If the alcalaíno decides to study offers of exit, knows that it will have the interest of the Seville of Lopetegui, although the operation is a puzzle of difficult resolution.
