Monreal joins Real Sociedad

Nacho Monreal has joined La Liga side Real Sociedad in a permanent deal.

The Spanish left back joined us from Malaga in January 2013 and made 251 appearances, scoring 10 goals.
 
During his time with us, Nacho played in his natural left-back position and also in central defence. He won three FA Cups, three Community Shields and played a big part in our run to the Europa League final last season.
 
A full international since 2009, Nacho was part of the Spain squad at the 2018 World Cup. He’s made 22 appearances for his country.
 
We would like to thank Nacho for his contribution to the club and everyone at Arsenal wishes him the best for his future.
 
The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
