Odegaard in London to pass Arsenal medical
Indeed, this Monday was the key day for Martin Odegaard's departure from Real Madrid (on loan). The Norwegian is already in London to join Arsenal.
According to 'Movistar+' or 'GOL', Odegaard travelled to the English capital in the morning, where he will undergo a medical before completing the final formalities with the Gunners.
After playing just 368 minutes in the first half of the season, something that Zinedine Zidane has been criticised for, Martin Odegaard had asked to leave the club in search of a more prominent role than he had been playing at Real Sociedad.
At first it seemed that he was going to return to Anoeta, that was the player's wish, but Real Madrid wanted him to be a step above. In this way, the Norwegian will share a dressing room with another loanee, Dani Ceballos.
Arsenal will pay 2.8 million euros for the loan and his wages for the next six months, during which he will remain on loan under the orders of Mikel Arteta.
