Real Madrid have reached a deal to sign Spain’s 22-year-old right-back Alvaro Odriozola from Real Sociedad.
“Real Madrid and Real Sociedad have agreed to the transfer of the player Alvaro Odriozola, pending the medical examination, and the player remains linked to the club for the next six seasons,” a statement from Real Madrid read.
Odriozola was with Spain at the World Cup but did not participate in any of the four games played by La Roja.
Odriozola will battle for a first-team spot with Madrid’s other right-backs Dani Carvajal, who also was in Russia with Spain, and Achraf Hakimi, who played for Morocco.
“We want to thank Alvaro Odriozola for the professionalism and commitment shown during his stay in our club from his youth years to the first team, at the same time as wishing him the best for his personal and professional future.”
Financial details of Odriozola’s transfer were not disclosed by the club.
