Real Madrid wants to loan Odegaard to Arsenal

Madrid do not want to loan Odegaard to fellow Spanish La Liga clubs.

MADRID - RealMadrid do not want to loan their player, Martin Odegaard, to Real Sociedad. Observer of Spanish football, Guillem Balague said, Real Madrid would rather lend Odegaard to Arsenal.

With Mesut Oezil leaving Arsenal, the Gunners are said to have asked the 22-year-old player. Although actually Odegaard wants to return to Real Sociedad after being loaned out last season.

"Real Madrid see Real Sociedad as a rival and they don't want to help the rivals. They are sixth in the table, only three points behind the top four. If they think the same thing, Champions League qualification, then it doesn't make sense to strengthen their competitors. "said Balague as quoted from the BBC website , Friday (22/1).

After returning from his loan last summer, Odegaard was predicted as a regular in the first team led by Zinedine Zidane, his coach while in the B team in 2015. But in reality, he has only featured once since the league match on November 21.

"Real Sociedad really hopes to get Odegaard back, even though David Silva is playing in that position. He (Odegaard) prefers there because he doesn't need adaptations and he just wants to play. But Real Madrid prefer Arsenal because of his style and they believe he plays regularly there. , "said Balague.

On the other hand, Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta did not comment much about Odegaard. But he made sure Arsenal would sign players before the February 1 transfer deadline. Moreover, Arsenal have lost several players.

"We have done the first part more or less and we are now focused on the second phase. Obviously this market and the context makes it difficult, but we are looking at options and we will see what we can do," said Arteta.

Arteta admits that the loss of several players means he has to look into which positions require new ammunition. So that later the players he brings will really contribute to the team. "So if we can, we will do it and if we cannot, we will continue with what we have," he explained.
