Martin Odegaard ‘most susceptible Real Madrid player to be sold with Ferland Mendy’ amid Arsenal transfer interest

MARTIN ODEGAARD and Ferland Mendy are the most likely Real Madrid players to be sold this summer, reports suggest.

According to Marca, Real are dealing with a few financial issues caused by the recent coronavirus pandemic and may have to raise funds in order to make some key additions.


Los Blancos are reportedly determined to sign Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe but the French talisman will cost an arm and a leg to prise away from the Parc des Princes.

Thus, Real manager Carlo Ancelotti understands that he will either have to sell some players or reduce salaries.

That is why the likes of Odegaard and Mendy are susceptible to a sale in the summer.

That is music to Arsenal's ears as the the north Londoners are very keen on landing the Norway international on a permanent deal.

Odegaard joined the Gunners during the second half of last season on loan from the Spanish giants.

The talented playmaker impressed during his brief stint at the Emirates with two goals and two assists in 20 appearances across all competitions.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is still looking to sign an attacking midfielder and the 22-year-old remains his top target.

However, it all depends on what Ancelotti wants to do at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Italian manager seems keen to give another opportunity to fallen stars, such as Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Isco.

The former Chelsea and Everton boss has also yet to give up on Eden Hazard, who has failed to stand out ever since his £89million move from Stamford Bridge in 2019.

But Real president Florentino Perez is highly likely to force some sales regardless.
