Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal has completed his move from Emirates to Real Sociedad to end a six-and-a-half-year spell with the North London club, during which time he won three FA Cups and three Community Shields.
The deal is reported to be worth £225,000, with the 33-year-old securing a two-year deal in San Sebastian. Monreal joined Arsenal from Malaga in January 2013 and won three FA Cups and three Community Shields as a Gunner, scoring 10 goals in 250 appearances.
He made his international debut in 2009, has won 22 caps and was a member of Spain’s 2018 World Cup squad.
“We would like to thank Nacho for his contribution to the club and everyone at Arsenal wishes him the best for his future,” Arsenal said in a statement. Arsenal said in a statement.
Monreal’s move comes on the eve of the first North London derby of the season and leaves Arsenal with a defensive shortage in the short-term.Though they signed a long-term replacement in the form of Kieran Tierney in the summer, the Scotland international is out injured and not expected back until the end of September. Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are also sidelined.
Monreal had started all three Premier League games so far this season, captaining the side against Burnley, but Sead Kolasinic is now the most likely left-back to make the crucial clash.
