Real Madrid have made known the signing of Real Sociedad defender Alvaro Odriozola.
Odriozola came through the youth system at Sociedad before making 50 La Liga appearances as well as earning a spot in Spain’s squad for the 2018 World Cup.
The 22-year-old did not make an appearance in Russia but that has not prevented former national team coach Julen Lopetegui deciding on taking the right-back to the Bernabeu.
A club announcement read: “Real Madrid and Real Sociedad have agreed the transfer of Alvaro Odriozola, pending a medical. The player will be tied to the club for the next six seasons.”
Real – who will pay just over £35m – now have three selected right-backs on their books with Odriozola joining both Dani Carvajal along with Achraf Hakani.
