Martin Odegaard stopped being happy at Real Madrid for the simple fact of not having enough minutes, something that Zidane did not interpret in a positive way. The Frenchman understood that Martin accepted Arsenal’s proposal because he was not willing to fight to win a place in their squad. This, in general, did not sit well with the white board, but the decision of the Norwegian footballer was respected at all times.
As reported by the English press, Arsenal could only sign Martin Odegaard if they pay the 80 million euros that are being requested from the Real Madrid offices.
Despite everything, the Nordic player is important to Zidane, and he is counting on him for the future. The Frenchman only asks that you do your part to win the job, as all newcomers do.
Odegaard fell under the curse of injuries, but did not have to abandon ship. This is how Zidane took it when he learned that he would pack his bags for London.
Nevertheless, the transfer that was agreed was only for six months, so in June it will return to the capital of Spain. Odegaard comes to be an important footballer, although he will have to work to convince Zidane.
At the moment at Arsenal he is not finding himself as comfortable as he would have liked, but little by little it seems that he is entering Mikel Arteta’s project. At first, he was somewhat displaced from the dynamics of the club.
Madrid awaits you with open arms when the season ends, but he will not be a relevant player until he shows it and convinces Zidane of his worth.
