Martin Odegaard has been impressive in Arsenal colours and in recent weeks the focus has turned to whether or not his loan deal from Real Madrid could be made permanent.
According to Marca, Odegaard’s parent club Madrid are looking to hold onto the 22-year-old.
Despite only joining the Gunners as recently as the end of January, the attacking midfielder has already made more first-team appearances for the north London club than he has for Los Blancos, whom he signed for in 2015.
As recently as last month, multiple reports indicated that Odegaard would prefer to follow in the footsteps of Dani Ceballos and spend a second season on loan with Mikel Arteta’s side than return to the Bernabeu and work under Zinedine Zidane.
If the Frenchman is to remain in the hot seat at Real Madrid, the onus is on him and those behind the scenes to regain the player’s trust if they want him to return willingly.
