A player on loan from Real Madrid puts pressure on the Merengue club.
Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard spoke to Sky Germany about his future. A future that is still very unclear, even for him: “I’m happy at Arsenal, but I belong to Real Madrid, so you have to talk to them”.
Artistic vagueness for Ødegaard
Martin Ødegaard spoke about his future. The Norwegian, who will complete his loan at Arsenal once the season is over, made it clear that much will depend on what Real Madrid have to say. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m a Real Madrid player so we’ll have to talk to them. It’s important to know what they want, ”he told Sky Sports Germany.
The midfielder hasn’t completely ruled out the possibility of staying at Arsenal after his loan deal was terminated.
“I’m happy at Arsenal, but we’ll see what happens at the end of the season,” he explained.
Since joining the Gunners in January, Ødegaard has become one of Mikel Arteta’s key players; the Spanish coach is delighted with him. He played 18 games for the English club and scored two goals. Arteta is pushing for the 22-year-old to stay.
The Spanish coach has also recently praised the Real player. “It helps us to do the transition phases better. He helps us as a team because he gives us a lot of continuity on the ball. He is really smart at finding spaces, he attracts a lot of opponents. He is asked to score goals, to arrive in the box. His contribution was really important for the team. ”
