In the final stretch of the transfer market, Real Madrid finds itself at a crossroads. The Merengue club, which has undergone a series of significant changes to its squad this summer, is now looking to finalize the potential departures of two of its least-used players: Reinier and Álvaro Odriozola.
Both players, despite not being at the center of the team’s operations, could say goodbye to the Santiago Bernabéu in search of greater continuity in their careers.
The 2 exits that Real Madrid wants to close before the market closes
Reinier, only 21 years old, is one of the young players with a promising future. However, he has struggled to earn a place in Real Madrid’s starting XI and spent last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund and Girona. Although several teams have expressed interest in him, no solid offer has been made so far. Real Madrid, aware of his potential, is looking for a destination that allows him to develop and reach his highest level.
On the other hand, Álvaro Odriozola, the versatile right-back, hardly had minutes last season and faces a similar situation in 2023-2024. Real Sociedad have shown interest in signing him, but according to OK Diario reports, they have not yet come close to an agreement. With just a year left on his contract, Odriozola could seriously consider a departure in search of more playing opportunities.
Real Madrid, for its part, is focused on strengthening its squad in other areas, especially up front. Although the possibility of Kylian Mbappé landing at the Santiago Bernabéu still seems like a chimera, interest persists, and white fans dream of seeing the French star with the number 9 on his back.
With the transfer market closing just around the corner, Real Madrid must make quick decisions regarding Reinier and Odriozola. The club is willing to find suitable destinations for them that will allow them to prosper in their respective careers while it continues its search for reinforcements to face the 2023-2024 season with renewed strength. Uncertainty persists, but the clock keeps ticking for Real Madrid in this transfer market.
