Real Madrid legend and captain Nacho has officially left the club to join Saudi Arabian team Al-Qadsiah.

The club announced on its official pages that the Spanish footballer has signed a two-year contract. Nacho himself shared that leaving Real Madrid was the hardest decision of his life.

"I told the club many months ago, back then I had doubts, but I am happy with what we've achieved, and there's nothing left for me to win with Real," stated the Spaniard.

Al-Qadsiah, the winner of Saudi Arabia's second division, is a newcomer to the Professional League.

Nacho Fernández, a product of Real Madrid's youth academy, has never played for another club. In total, the 34-year-old defender made 364 appearances for Real and won 26 trophies. Due to a series of injuries last season, Nacho became a regular starter and played in 45 matches.

Notably, Croatian Luka Modric will become the new captain of the team.
