'Tebas is a Barca agent': Fan explains how Nacho's reduced suspension can backfire on Real Madrid

Nacho will only serve a one-game suspension for his bad challenge on Alaves' Samu Omorodion.

While most Madridistas expectedly think it's great news, some others believe this decision will be crucial to the club's transfer plans.

"This Tebas is a Barcelona agent for sure," Mayank Goel tweets.

"He knew if Nacho got suspended for a long time, [Florentino] Perez would venture into the market for a defender to bolster the squad. Now with only a one-match ban, I am pretty sure Real Madrid ain't signing anybody."

While the club's U-turn on their January plans has not been confirmed, there's some logic in Mayank's words. It was reported that Real Madrid had only agreed to look for a new centre-back because of Nacho's potential long-term suspension.

Now, Carlo Ancelotti is expected to use the centre-back pairing of Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger against Mallorca before playing with Rudiger and Nacho again.

As a reminder, David Alaba is sidelined until the end of the season while Eder Militao will only be back in late February or March.
