Real Madrid won’t entertain the permanent departure of Martin Odegaard when he returns from his short-term loan at Arsenal.
Odegaard managed less than 400 minutes with Los Blancos during the first half of the season under manager Zinedine Zidane.
Hence, he was loaned out to the Gunners in January and he has since evolved into a key player for the north London club.
Odegaard has only scored twice in 12 appearances, but he has played in the lead-up to several goals for the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta‘s side are exploring the prospect of keeping Odegaard next term, but Marca claims that they are unlikely to do so.
Los Blancos consider Odegaard as part of their future plans and won’t entertain his permanent exit during the summer.
Furthermore, Odegaard is determined to prove himself with the Spanish champions, should he be assured with regular game time.
Odegaard twisted his ankle playing for Norway against Gibraltar last night, but he was part of the training group in Marbella today.
