After the exodus earlier this summer, Real Madrid do not have much deadwood remaining in their squad. Almost every player in the team has a definitive role under Carlo Ancelotti, either as a starter or a backup option.

Reinier and Alvaro Odriozola are perhaps the only two players in the squad who do not fit into the manager’s plans. Unsurprisingly, both players are exit-linked. AS provides an update on the latter’s situation.

Odriozola is adamant on his destination

According to the Spanish publication, the Real Madrid defender is still waiting to hear from Real Sociedad and engineer a return to his former club. He prioritises a move back to his boyhood club and has thus pushed away other proposals on his table.

With deadline day less only a few days away, Odriozola’s situation is now entering risky territory.

After all, La Real has yet to respond or make a tangible move towards completing his acquisition.

The Basque side have been active in the ongoing summer transfer window and have already signed four players.

The club director, Roberto Olabe, likes Odriozola as a new right-back but it is clear that there are reservations over the Real Madrid star with the rest of the administration.

Odriozola has reached an agreement

The report adds that the defender already reached an agreement with Real Sociedad about the terms of his return.

However, there is still no agreement between La Real and Los Blancos, nor any attempt to reach such an arrangement.

The coming days will thus be critical for Odriozola. The 27-year-old knows that he will have no minutes at Real Madrid, and with La Real yet to reply, he could be forced to explore other avenues.

The option of Saudi Arabia is not ruled out, but Odriozola could well stay for the season and see his contract out as well.

Real Madrid’s game against Las Palmas this midweek was an important one for the club.

The Spanish giants secured a 2-0 victory over the Canaries. But more importantly, the game witnessed the return of Vinicius Junior, who was coming back from an injury.

However, it was not the most pleasing return from the Brazilian, who had an altercation with head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Dispute ends without a handshake

A video has surfaced recently which shows that Vinicius Junior and Ancelotti even ended the game without even shaking hands.

The altercation started when Ancelotti was seen talking to Vinicius, asking him to play more freely.

Vinicius, though, was not happy with the Italian’s tactics. He pointed out his disagreement with Ancelotti and highlighted the team’s lack of structure.

Ancelotti continued to yell at the Brazilian, asking him to play a certain way. The matters turned worse when Vini continued to turn his back on the Real Madrid coach.

After the final whistle, the Brazilian international did glance past Ancelotti without even shaking his hand.

Ancelotti under pressure

This is a worrying sign for Real Madrid and an indicator that the team is not entirely happy with Ancelotti, who has faced criticism despite a relatively good start to the season.

Although the Real Madrid board has continued to back the former AC Milan and PSG coach, the Italian is certainly running on thin ice.

The upcoming games against Girona, Napoli and Osasuna could be crucial as Real Madrid look to maintain their winning momentum, especially following a derby defeat to Atleti.

In the meantime, Ancelotti must definitely have a word with Vinicius and calm the Brazilian, knowing the attacker could play a key role in revving up the team’s offensive unit in the coming weeks.
