Nacho joins Al-Qadsiah after Leaving Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid defender Nacho has joined Saudi Pro League side Al-Qadsiah.

The 34-year-old, who left the Spanish champions after 23 years on Tuesday, will move following Euro 2024, where he is part of the Spain squad.

"These things don't affect me in the games. I knew it for months and it's made me enjoy things more," Nacho said.

Al-Qadsiah were promoted to the top division last month by winning the Saudi First Division League.

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

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al Nassr in 2022, while Karim Benzema - another of Nacho's former Real team-mates - plays for Al-Ittihad.

Last summer the Saudi Pro League had the fourth highest transfer spend among domestic leagues, exceeding Spain's La Liga and the Bundesliga in Germany.

Spain face Georgia in the last 16 of Euro 2024 on Saturday.
