Odriozola plays down speculation

Real Sociedad defender Alvaro Odriozola has played down reports linking him with a switch to Real Madrid or Barcelona.

The 21-year-old has emerged as one of the brightest young talents in Spain in since making his senior debut for Sociedad in January.

Odriozola has turned out in 22 La Liga games, starting 21 of them, and he was handed his debut for the Spain national team during Friday’s victory over Albania.

Unsurprisingly Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have been linked with his services but the youngster insists he is happy to remain at the Anoeta and remains fully focused on being a success with La Real.

Odriozola said: “I renewed my contract with La Real until 2022 for a reason.

“When you are playing with the Spain your future is magnified (by the media) but the only thing in my head is Real Sociedad, nothing else matters.

“I only ever try to do my job and perform well, not to think about anything else including transfers or how I performed with Spain.

“Now my time with the national team is over and I’m now fully focused on La Real.

“Everything has happened very quickly and you simply don’t have time to look back, only to the here and now.”
