‘Plan B’ Perez puts the Bayern player as first choice in his next deal


2023 will bring important decisions for Real Madrid, including the one that implies knowing what Nacho Fernández will do with his future.

The youth squad, whose contract ends on June 30 and who must still define the steps to follow in his career, will be a topic of conversation behind closed doors at a club that sees Benjamin Pavard as its ‘Plan B’ in this regard.

Nacho Fernández and Real Madrid will be together until June 30, 2023, but right now what happens after that date is an enigma.

The white team, confident in their desire to retain the symbol of La Fábrica, begins to look at options if they have to adopt a ‘Plan B’ where Benjamin Pavard is the first option.

The name of the 26-year-old French defender enters the scene despite the fact that he has a contract for a couple of more seasons at Bayern Munich and that the white team is only looking right now at the contractual situation of the one who has become his best soldier so far. throughout the last decade. Pavard, an option in case you have to take hard roads.

Benjamin, who was the first player to leave the Allianz Arena after Saturday’s game against Mainz without having contact with Julian Nagelsmann and who has been substituted in three of the last five games, also left the Bayern facilities this morning with two gestures of rage before the cameras of Sky Sports. There are no talks to renew a contract that ‘alerts’ Madrid.

Two birds with one stone?
Everything goes through the youth squad and captain of Real Madrid for the future. From the club they want Nacho to continue, to renew his contract and to become the first ‘One Man Club’ of the white team in several decades. If this fact were not possible and the number ‘6’ decided to head to new destinations in search of minutes, Pavard represents an opportunity for which, although it is not necessary to do crazy things, it has all the characteristics that the board is looking for right now.

The 26 years of the Frenchman, added to that versatility that allows him to play both central and right-back, would allow Madrid to get a name full of future and projection that would have gallons to spare to grow in the capital. No crazy things will be done thanks to that Pavard contract that ends in 2024 and although everything depends on the decisions that Nacho makes, Florentino Pérez and Carlo Ancelotti write down Benjamin’s name in case a painful secondary protocol has to be activated.
