Make no mistake about it, Real Madrid are the best team in the world right now. If they win the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1, this would only solidify the statement. However, Carlo Ancelotti is also considering what will happen after the Champions League final.

Of course, the Italian boss has plans to bring in some big names. As a manager who is proud but never satisfied, this was to be expected. However, he must also consider which players will be leaving.

Toni Kroos has already announced his retirement upon the expiry of his contract. Luka Modric, on the other hand, is in talks to sign a one-year contract extension and it looks like there will be no issues in Modric's case. Nacho is a little different, though, in the sense of nobody truly knowing where his future lies... Not even Nacho himself.

Club legend reconsiders Real Madrid transfer exit in summer

According to an update from Marca, Nacho Fernandez is currently considering his options for next season. After it seemed destined that he was set on leaving Real Madrid, it appears the club legend is having a serious rethink. Rumour has it, he could even be contemplating a one-year extension, just like Luka Modric.

At the moment, it remains speculation. As mentioned, Nacho himself does not even know where his future lies. It is a big decision to make not just for Nacho but those around him - It can often be forgotten that footballers are family-orientated people too, so relocating away from the Spanish capital is a decision which Nacho is understandably not taking lightly.

It is common courtesy for Real Madrid to offer their club legends a one-year contract extension to keep them at the club. Of course, it remains in the hands of the players whether or not they take up the deal to remain at the club for a further year.

In the nicest possible way, Nacho is not of utmost concern to Real Madrid fans. He has not had a great season and while nobody denies his club legend status, he has been a defensive liability at times this season. A great squad player, but he is no longer good enough to start for the club on a consistent week-in, week-out basis.
