Odriozola joins Bayern on loan for the rest of the season

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Real Madrid defender Alvaro Odriozola on loan until the end of the season. The Spaniard arrived in Germany on Tuesday and underwent a medical before the announcement was made on Wednesday.

Odriozola had fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabeu this season, having been used just five times by Zinedine Zidane thus far. His last appearance for the Los Blancos was in the UCL win against Club Brugge in December. He has played no part in the La Liga since the loss to Mallorca on October 19.

He joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2018 from Real Sociedad in a deal worth €40 million (£35.4m/$46.8m), with hopes that he would provide worthy competition for Dani Carvajal. However, this was the case.

“We are very happy about the commitment and would like to thank those responsible at Real Madrid for the very friendly and cooperative discussions.”
