Balague on Arsenal’s chances to sign 22-year-old playmaker

Written by Edward Pitt

During a busy January, Arsenal agreed to take Martin Odegaard on a 6 month loan from Real Madrid. The Gunners needed another creative midfield to reduce the burden currently on Smith Rowe.

Reports also suggest that the Gunner are interested in making their move for the Norweigan talent permanent in the summer. Odegaard is reportedly desperate to settle down somewhere that can promise him first team football; if he cannot secure this in Madrid, he may be tempted with a move to Arsenal depending on the success of his loan.

However, this is all dependent as well on whether or not Real Madrid would be willing to sell. Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has had his say on the matter suggesting that we have ‘zero’ chance of signing him permanently as it would make little sense from Real Madrid.

He went on to say that Madrid must start building for the future, meaning keeping hold of their best young players. If Zidane can’t do this, rumour has it another manager with the right attitude will be appointed instead. 

I would say don’t fear too much Arsenal fans. There aren’t many players in world football who aren’t available for the right price. And whilst building for the future would make sense, it isn’t something that Real Madrid have cared too much about in recent years.
