Atlético Madrid defender Mario Hermoso has been in an uncertain situation at the club for some time. During the summer market, there was speculation about his possible departure, but he ultimately remained in the squad. Then, rumors emerged that his renewal was underway, but now Al-Nassr has arrived to change the situation.
Hermoso’s contract with Atlético de Madrid is about to expire, which has opened the door to various possibilities. The option of renewing his contract remains an option, but an offer from Al-Nassr has altered the picture.
Al Nassr moves Mario Hermoso away from Atlético de Madrid
Al-Nassr, a team from Saudi Arabia, is looking for defensive reinforcements, and Mario Hermoso has caught their interest. The Saudi team considers him one of their main options to reinforce their defense along with Aymeric Laporte. Although the player’s opinion is not yet known, it is a possibility that could be taken into account.
Al-Nassr’s offer is rumored to be substantial, significantly exceeding what Atlético Madrid had proposed in terms of renewal. Although initially, Hermoso’s intention was to stay at the club, the economic aspect could be a determining factor in his decision.
The future of Mario Hermoso, 28, is up in the air as his contract with Atlético de Madrid approaches its expiration date in the summer of 2024. So far this season, the Spanish centre-back has played 9 matches between La Liga and the UEFA Champions League with the colchonero team.
Al-Nassr has presented a tempting offer that could lead Mario Hermoso to seriously consider a change of scenery. As negotiations develop and the expiration date of his contract approaches, the future of the Spanish defender is expected to be resolved, and his continuity at the Metropolitano could be at stake.
