Zinedine Zidane decides to recall Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian has enjoyed a stellar season at Real Sociedad.
Odegaard has enjoyed a stellar loan spell with La Real this term, even impressed against Los Blancos in the Copa del Rey clash.
The 21-year-old racked up a total of 7 goals and 9 assists in all competitions and was one of the league’s top creative midfielders.
Following an impressive campaign at Eredivise with FC Twente, Odegaard has now found his foothold in the Spanish top-flight.
The Norwegian youngster stated earlier that he would be happy to continue with Sociedad as his loan spell expires this summer.
Los Blancos, who have the option to buy back or to lend Odegaard for another season, has apparently chosen the former option.
Zidane also looks to be deprived of enough creativity from the midfield as both James Rodriguez and Isco have fallen out of favour.
Besides, Luka Modric is nearing the twilight of his career as the Croatian playmaker can’t be relied on for the entirety of the season.
Furthermore, the French manager is looking to offer the Norwegian playmaker a starting berth in the main team.
Los Blancos have been crowned as the La Liga champions despite coming up short in the Champions League.
If they are to continue their dominance in the league as well to revive their form in the Champions League, a player like Odegaard can’t be missed at all cost.
