Odegaard Expected In London Before Nightfall
Posted: 27 January 2021
The Beautiful Game’s European Correspondent Chris Wheatley has been reliably informed by sources in Madrid that Martin Odegaard is expected in London late this afternoon, or at least by evening.
The playmaker completed his medical assessments at the Cuidad Real Madrid Training Centre yesterday, which was done in three installments, with the first assessment completed just before 11:H00 CET.
Arsenal Football Club have been in talks with Los Blancos for the 22-year-old as we broke the story some seventy two hours (72) ago, and we understand all the contractual nitty gritty’s have been sorted out.
Odegaard will be on loan at the Emirates Stadium until the end of the season, with The Gunners set to pay a £1.8m loan fee and pay his wages.
The two clubs will again sit around a table in May to discuss whether the deal can be permanent, however, at this time, it is nothing but a loan deal with no obligation to purchase.
