Martin Odegaard and Dani Ceballos have both made impacts at Arsenal while on-loan from Real Madrid, with many fans calling for at least one or both to be signed on a permanent deal – now a decision has been made by the Spaniards.
According to a report via the Metro, Real Madrid have now decided to cash-in and sell both players this summer in what will be a huge boost to Arsenal, but now they will be under pressure to get their offer(s) in-place, ahead of any potential competition.
Martin Odegaard has been particularly eye-catching in the number 10 role and his adaptability to the Premier League has caught the attention of other clubs, but the Norwegian international seems to be enjoying his time in north London and would likely be keen to stay – suggests the report.
Real Madrid need to raise funds and clear the decks as they transition towards what they hope will be some big-name signings, including the likes of striker Erling Haaland.
There’s a chance Real Madrid may yet make a u-turn on this transfer decision to sell, should manager Zinedine Zidane be shown the door, but that’s based on nothing more than the club’s history in disposing of managers that fail to deliver any silverware in a season. Madrid are still fighting to retain the La Liga title and lift the Champions League.
