Real Madrid possess ample talent within their ranks, but not every player is privileged with regular game time, as a few fringe assets currently residing at the club do not enter Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.
One of the alienated players is Alvaro Odriozola, who understands his game time is set to be incredibly limited in the ongoing season and thus has been working to reunite with his former club, Real Sociedad.
With Odriozola already keen on making the jump to La Real, Aperribay, the club president, Jokin Aperribay, addressed the rumours related to a potential comeback for their academy graduate.
While speaking at the unveiling ceremony of Kieran Tierney, he was asked about Sociedad’s stance regarding Odriozola, to which he replied (h/t Mundo Deportivo):
“La Real are interested in Odriozola, a home-grown player I’ve always known.”
Aperribay was asked if his club is going to open talks with Real Madrid, with the president stating: “Are we going to talk to Madrid? We’ll see. We took the summer one step at a time.”
Odrioziola, having already agreed personal terms with the Basque side, simply awaits a formal negotiation between Real Sociedad and Real Madrid before the window slams shut.
The 27-year-old is aware that staying in the Spanish capital would lead him to warm the bench for the majority of the season, and as La Real has not yet responded, he may be obliged to look into other options.
Either he may be tempted to explore an avenue to Saudi Arabia or simply see out the final year of his contract until June 30, 2024, at which point he will be released.

It has become a common theme to sing Jude Bellingham’s praises after a Real Madrid game.
Four matches into the new season and the new signing appears to be the biggest talking point in Spanish football by far.
The youngster continued his stellar form in Los Blancos’ 2-1 win over Getafe earlier today, scoring the winner in the dying minutes of the match.
Pouncing on David Soria’s sloppy save off Lucas Vazquez’s shot, the youngster had the composure to guide it into the back of the net and take home all three points.
The man of the moment spoke about the team being rewarded with a win after a hard-fought encounter and how it came about.
“We had to have a lot of patience. The fans have encouraged us a lot. With the goal I saw that Lucas Vázquez was going to shoot, that it could fall to me and I could score.”
“It wasn’t the most beautiful thing, but there is also a lot of mental work to judge where the ball is going to fall. I was calm and I shot. After the goal there was an incredible noise in the stadium, I hadn’t experienced anything like it,” he added, taking one through the enthralling goal once again.
The new signing then spoke about the team’s great run of momentum so early on in the season and the importance of the away factor in reading the results.
“Four out of four. It can’t be forgotten that the first three have been away from home. They are very tough matches playing on the opponent’s field with the rival fans and we got them out of the way.”
“We played well today. We scored a goal but the reaction was good. We won and you can’t ask for more,” he added on the team’s fourth consecutive win.
Speaking on what the Merengues changed in the second half to open up Getafe repeatedly with ease, Bellingham said,
“We played with more intent, we attacked with more speed, we circulated the ball more and we had a better definition. We dominated, and with this team we are unstoppable.”
“It’s crazy to play with my teammates and I always try to do better and catch their positive energy,” he continued, emphasising the belief in the squad.
Bellingham then ran back the clock to relive the moment he scored the winning goal against Getafe and described the atmosphere as the noisiest thing he had ever heard.
“The moment of the goal was the loudest I’ve ever heard on a football pitch. I couldn’t believe it. My legs were shaking when they chanted my name at the end of the game.
“I was signed for this and I have to keep it up. I felt the support every time I made a play. I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve it but I’m very grateful. Every time I put on this shirt I give one hundred percent and I hope to continue like this,” he said.
Finally, the former Borussia Dortmund star was asked about how it felt to make his debut at Real Madrid’s home stadium, to which he said,
“It’s a dream come true when I signed for this great club and even more so when you score and win. It is difficult to explain it in words. I am very happy but we have a lot left. My feet are on the ground and I want to continue helping the team.”
