Nacho inks with Al-Qadsiah after leaving Los Blancos

Former Real Madrid captain joined the Saudi Arabian team.

Ex-Los Blancos captain Nacho has joined the Saudi Pro League club Al-Qadsiah.

The 34-year-old, who left Real Madrid after 23 years 2 days ago, will move after the end of his participation in Euro 2024, where he is playing for the Spanish national team.

“These things don’t affect my participation in the European championship. I knew it in the past several months, and it’s made me enjoy things more,” Nacho revealed.

Al-Qadsiah were promoted to the top division in May after triumphing with the Saudi First Division League.

Several high-profile footballers are involved in the Saudi Pro League.

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al Nassr 2 years ago, while Karim Benzema – another of Nacho’s ex-Los Blancos teammates – is part of Al-Ittihad.

In the past summer, the Saudi Arabian league had the 4th highest transfer spending among domestic leagues, exceeding La Liga and the Bundesliga.

Spain will play against Georgia in the 1/8 finals of Euro 2024 at the beginning of the weekend.
