Arsenal in line for major coup this summer as star instructs agent to open negotiations

Real Madrid find themselves at an interesting crossroads this summer, yet there’s no sign of Zinedine Zidane moving on.

He’s always relied on the same core of veteran players despite Real’s efforts to sign up the best talents in world football over the past few years, and you have to expect he’ll try to squeeze one more season out of the likes of Modric, Benzema, Marcelo and even Sergio Ramos if he can be convinced to stay.

There’s also an expectation that they’re going to be more active in the transfer market, so players like Martin Odegaard are obviously going to get fed up and they’ll decide to go somewhere else.

It’s still early days for the Norwegian star at Arsenal but he’s starting to shine, and it’s easy to see him becoming a key part of Mikel Arteta’s team for years to come so that has to be preferable to going back to Real and sitting on the bench.

A recent report from El Gol Digital has indicated that Odegaard wants to stay at Arsenal on a permanent basis – to the point that he’s instructed his agent to start negotiations over the deal.

Martin Odegaard is looking to move to Arsenal permanently

Obviously that’s huge for Arsenal because it shows that he wants to stay so the contract negotiations should take care of themselves, while Real don’t have a lot of leverage if a player is actively trying to force his way out of the club.

Odegaard’s main reason for wanting the move is to have a chance at continuity and actually settling down somewhere, so it could be a massive coup for Arsenal if he keeps playing well and they manage to pull this off.

    players like Odegaard is good for the team(Arsenal) because he is willing to bring title for the team and for himself

  2. dayabusman says:

    A good news for us

  3. Hearsz says:

    He’s settled in really quick at Arsenal, and you can tell he enjoys playing for them and the players around him – you see his reaction to both goals last week
    The other positive thing is that he and Smith-Rowe can interchange but also play in the same team together, as we all saw against Spurs.

    He’s definitely a player you can build a team around (along with ESR and Saka), which is probably what Arteta is thinking.
