Tue 27 April 2021 | 0:50

Athletic Bilbao are unlikely to make a move for Real Madrid defender, Alvaro Odriozola in the summer despite previous ties to the 25-year-old.

The Basque giants were making a move for the ex-Real Sociedad full-back last summer when he went back to Los Blancos after a disappointing performance at Bayern Munich on loan.

Odriozola

has tried to get back into Zinedine Zidane‘s team this season with Lucas Vazquez preferred as an alternative right back to the sidelined Dani Carvajal.

However, after losing Ander Capa for the rest of the campaign, according to reports from

Marca

, Odriozola has been put on the sidelines by Marcelino.

Capa was forced off in the second half of

Athletic Bilbao

’s unique 2-1 La Liga triumph against Atletico Madrid last weekend.

The ex-Eibar ace is assumed to be out of action for at least two months and he could miss the start of next season if his recovery took time.
