Returning in the starting line-up
Álvaro Odriozola is once again on the verge of returning to Real Sociedad. The San Sebastián full-back has once again been relatively close to playing on loan until the end of this season at the San Sebastián club, where he was trained and from which he came to Real Madrid. Given the lack of minutes in the white club through Carlo Ancelotti, he looked very favorably on the possibility of returning home and it is something that his representatives have tried again in the last hours of the transfer market.
Everything about the performance of Odriozola
This possibility has been tempting the San Sebastian side for a long time, and it was something that was on the table for both parties since the winter transfer market opened. For Odriozola, the option of returning to his home club on loan and then seeing what decision was made in the summer was something that appealed to him. His representatives have come to offer it at the Anoeta offices and have raised this market option with Real, which has been valued and ultimately discarded at this time due to the lofty claims of the white club.The operation skyrocketed to numbers that Real were not willing to assume, between the player’s salary and what Real Madrid is asking for a six-month loan. Without forgetting, of course, that in order to register Odriozola in LaLiga, Real Sociedad would have to release one of its players from the current squad, because they have all 25 chips occupied, and Imanol did not want to touch anything from the team, because he considers that This is fine to face the second part of the season.
It is the second time that the possible return of Álvaro Odriozola to Real Sociedad has been frustrated for a similar reason, for not reaching an understanding on the amounts to close the operation. In summer it was also tried in the final stretch of the market and it did not go ahead either. It was understood in Donostia as a market opportunity, but it did not fully materialize. The man from San Sebastián waited for the Inter Milan option to materialize, but when he didn’t get ahead, in the end he had to stay at Real Madrid with hardly any minutes. Now he has not been able to get a start to his liking either, and the white club has not given any facilities either, probably a sign that he had no intention of leaving at this point in the season.
