Arsenal have announced that Nacho Monreal has left the club and signed for Real Sociedad.
The 33 year old joined the Gunners in January 2013, a surprise last minute signing on deadline day, and since then has made 250 appearances.
He began his career playing back-up to Kieran Gibbs, but soon made the left-back position his own. A versatile defender, he also played as a centre-half, in a back three and in a back four at times.
Nacho scored 10 goals for us, and won the FA Cup three times in 2014, 2015, and 2017.
A solid, reliable professional and an all round good guy, he will be missed – hopefully not too badly tomorrow when we face Sp*rs.
Arsenal did sign Kieran Tierney this summer for £25m, and he’s clearly the long-term replacement for the Spaniard.
Buena suerte, Nacho. Thanks for everything.
