Having parted ways with as many as five first-team players already this summer, Real Madrid look poised to bid goodbye to another star in the coming weeks with Alvaro Odriozola staring at the exit doors.

The Spanish right-back has been out of favour under Carlo Ancelotti and has been heavily linked with an exit this summer, especially with his contract set to expire in 2024.

Odriozola’s former club, Real Sociedad, have shown interest in re-signing the defender, and as per reports relayed by SPORT, the right-back and the Basque club have reached an agreement over a transfer.

Now, all that remains for a transfer to be completed is for Real Madrid and Real Sociedad to agree on the terms of the transfer.

Odriozola is a product of the Real Sociedad youth setup and came to Real Madrid in 2018 after impressing at his boyhood club.

But things did not work out for the 27-year-old at the Santiago Bernabeu and loan spells away at Bayern Munich and Fiorentina also failed to reignite his career.

An exit looked likely last summer, but Ancelotti opted to retain the defender although Odriozola barely played during the 2022/23 campaign.

Now, though, a departure seems set in stone and the defender appears to be on his way back to Real Sociedad, with an agreement in place between the player and the club.

The two clubs will now negotiate and close the operation. Real Madrid were hoping to receive a nominal fee for the departure of the right-back, but there is a good chance that they let him leave for free.

Odriozola has been named in the squad list for the pre-season tour of the US. So, it remains to be seen when the transfer is finalised.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
