Real Madrid: a base for a defender?

Not in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans, Alvaro Odriozola could change air in the coming weeks. A major Serie A club would pinch for the Spanish right side.

Alvaro Odriozola, Real Madrid

Zero minutes this season

The conclusion is relentless. Alvaro Odriozola does not enter the small papers of the real Madrid. Barred by Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez and Nacho, the Spanish defender has not played a single game since the start of the 2022-2023 season. Although very regularly summoned by Carlo Ancelotti, the 26-year-old right-back must be chomping at the bit and be content to observe from the sidelines the performances of Karim Benzema’s partners.

Under contract until 2024

Loaned by the Merengue to Fiorentina during the 2021-2022 season (27 games, one goal), the ex-member of Bayern Munich would arouse the interest of Juventus Turin, according to information from The Gazzetta dello Sport. In January 2023, the Old Lady would like to secure her services in the form of a six-month loan. For its part, the White House would demand a permanent transfer and a check for 10 million euros for its undesirable, under contract until June 2024. The Italian newspaper specifies that the two formations could take advantage of the international truce linked to the Cup World Cup 2022 in Qatar (November 20-December 18) to try to finalize a deal.

After a remarkable stint at Viola, the native of San Sebastian will undoubtedly not remain insensitive to this lust for the Bianconeri of Massimiliano Allegri, left behind in Serie A and eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League. Landed at Santiago-Bernabeu in the summer of 2018 for the sum of 32 million euros, Alvaro Odriozola played 43 games with the last winner of the Champions League and reigning Spanish champion, for 3 goals.
