Real Sociedad are back for Nacho Monreal who could be allowed to leave the club this summer despite recently signing a one-year extension.
Arsenal seem to be in the market for both a right and left-back and, although Nacho Monreal is the fans’ preferred option between him and Sead Kolasinac, it looks as if the Spaniard could be allowed to leave.
That means it was a good thing they activated his one-year extension. Previously, the club would have just allowed him to stroll out the door for nothing.
Real Sociedad are said to be interested, again, as they are paying ‘special attention’ to the role of left-back this summer.
After trying to make three at the back work without success it is claimed that Unai Emery now wants to revert to a four. That means shifting on and replacing a few players, one of whom is Nacho Monreal.
The 33-year-old was heavily linked with an exit as the season drew to a close but when it was revealed that he’d signed a new one-year deal most thought that was the end of the matter.
Along with Laurent Koscielny, the pair could be shipped out to make room both in the side and the wage budget.
At the start of April, it was claimed in Spain that ‘everything points to’ Nacho Monreal signing for Real Sociedad this summer.
Barcelona have also been heavily linked with a move for the player although that gossip seems to have died down.
