Odegaard not happy after Real Madrid rejection

Arsenal loanee “heartbroken” at the prospect of leaving Real Madrid


Martin Odegaard has reportedly been told that his future no longer lies at Santiago Bernabeu, according to 90min. After moving on-loan to Arsenal in the January transfer window, the Norway international made it clear that his preference was to return to Spain in the summer.

However, reports have emerged that Real Madrid don’t see him as part of their rebuild. Zinedine Zidane does not see the 22-year-old as part of his plans and thus the club have told the Norwegian captain that he can find a new club at the end of the season, after failing to establish himself in their first team under the Frenchman.

Thus, Odegaard is understood to be heartbroken at the prospect of leaving Real Madrid this summer.

Before moving to the Spanish giants in 2015, Arsenal were reportedly interested in signing the young Norwegian star. The Real Marid loanee even visited London Colney before deciding to join the Los Blancos.

It is no secret that Arsenal will try to retain their star midfielder beyond the upcoming summer. He has made a positive impact at the Emirates Stadium since the switch and has even stated that he would like to have some “stability” in his career.

The Gunners must also be aware of the interest in him. Due to his strong performances at Arsenal, the midfielder has reportedly caught the eyes of Chelsea, Liverpool and even French champions Paris Saint Germain.

If Arsenal don’t qualify for Europe this season, they can forget about signing players of Odegaard’s caliber.

The drawing board of Edu (technical director) must have all the situations that can pan out at the end of the season. Whether they qualify for Champions League or the Europa League.

If they don’t qualify for Europe at all, the fans will definitely point out at how far the club have fallen since they won the league in 2004.

    Pls permit me 2 go off topic. How can I post an article on justarsenal ? If I can’t, then I want anyone close 2 our scouts or management (if we have any) 2 pls scout 4 & buy Paul Onuachu, the gangling Genk/Nigerian striker. The Guy’s a beast & will solve our setpiece woes. Any striker who can score 26 goals & above in a single season, be it in a 4 tier league, should be taken serious. Arsenal should remember KANU Nwankwo was a gamble that paid off. Another trial might convince us on this guy. Pls, anybody close 2 the management should draw their attention 2 this guy. Thank you.

    I do not believe our failure to qualify for Europe is a major impediment to signing quality young players such as Odegaard.The lack of European football will hit us financially, but we are unable to compete with the major sides in Europe in any event, and in some ways a season free of mid week games and the travel involved, will give players a great opportunity to recharge their batteries for weekend League matches.Despite our current problems and mid table status, Arsenal is still an attractive port of call for the vast majority of professionals given our great history, stadium, London appeal etc.

      Like you Grandad, I see little benefit in qualifying for the Europa in any case, UNLESS we have a serious chance to actually win it. I do not think we can win it this year, given the poor squad we have .

      Missing out on qualifying for it next year – as I think we will miss out – will prove a blessing in disguise. The CL is a different case and THAT competition matters to incoming players.

      But the Europa is frankly not much cop, either financially or in prestige. Not by comparison to the CL. Reality!

    “If Arsenal don’t qualify for Europe this season, they can forget about signing players of Odegaard’s caliber.”

    Players of Odegaard’s caliber should help us qualify for Europe this season and if they can’t we should look for players who can.

    Doesn’t matter what we do, looks like he’s headed to Liverpool…

  5. Almaria says:

    Keep Odegaurd,.

    Why should he be heading for Liverpool, apart from Klopp trytng to lure him away, as seen at the end of the match

    The idea of putting pressure on the current team to first qualify for EUFA before giving money for market only not work but it will instead sink the team deep in to the relegation zone, its better the Kroenke should splash with condition to the coach to make sure he get the right choices and qualify or be sacked. other wise we are finished.

  7. Erungho Nathaniel says:

    Some of the players we signed that could have helped to fight for top for have disappoint us.

  8. Chuma Ikeazor says:

    Every one of us have an opinion, isn’t that part of the beauty of the magnificent game, absolute freedom of speech, unadulterated democracy. Giving Arteta to rebuild the team is not a mistake, it will take trial and errors to eventually get things done. The problem is that some of these players have continued to sabotage the efforts of others who are genuinely interested in giving their best even if it may not be good enough. History will judge the wicked. Obameyang has the best chance at immortality at the Emirates but arrogance may see him lose it. Gooners shall rise again.
