Barcelona look unstoppable right now, as the Catalan side are steam rolling every team that comes in front of them. Messi and Suarez are hitting top form right now, with Philippe Coutinho yet to fully incorporate himself in the team just yet.
Real Madrid though are in crisis this year, as they have been shocking in the league and have fallen out of the contention for the championship.
They won their first leg against PSG at the Bernabeu last week, and will now shift their entire focus to the Champions League. In spite of winning two consecutive Champions Leagues, Zidane is under immense pressure and will be fearing the sack if he does deliver a third European trophy.
Madrid are also looking to reinforce in the summer, and have already shortlisted Eden Hazard and Harry Kane as two players that they will set out to buy in the summer.
Now we hear that Real Madrid are looking at Real Sociedad’s Alvaro Odriozola in the summer, as they are looking to trigger his 35 Million pounds release clause.
Odriozola is an extremely talented player who is destined for greener pastures. His performances this year have impressed one and all, including Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.
The Argentine has now asked his club to buy the talented right-back, as Messi does not want him to move to Real Madrid.
Barcelona already have Sergi and Semedo in their ranks, but with Sergi eventually expected to move into midfield, the right back spot certainly opens up for Odriozola.
With the World Cup on the horizon, Odriozola will be looking make it into the national team’s squad for the big tournament.
A good showing in Russia could certainly change the young defender’s life!
