Odegaard to return to Madrid this summer

Sun 28 February 2021 | 10:19

Despite Arsenal’s interest in making the Norwegian’s loan deal permanent, Real Madrid see him as a key fixture in their long-term plans and are reluctant to let him join the Gunners permanently.

According to

Although

Odegaard

has only made seven La Liga appearances for

Zinedine Zidane’s

side, the Los Blancos are hoping to have him back for the next season as the decision on his loan departure was purely so the youngster could get more first-team minutes under his belt.

However, already an important member of

Arteta’s

squad,

Odegaard

refused to rule out a permanent move to

Arsenal

talking to Norwegian station,

TV2

, earlier this month.

“You never know what happens, but first of all my focus is about the rest of the season

," he said.

"Hopefully help the team, and then we'll see what happens."
