With the Champions League quota practically in his pocket, the real sports management begins to concentrate on planning the next squad, where they already have their first contract defined.
Yesterday’s victory at the Reale Arena against UD Almería practically left the Real society with the place for the Champions League, as predicted by Roberto Olabe. And it is that he sports director He was waiting for his team to achieve this important goal, to start working now on planning a squad that is capable of performing at an international level.
In the real team they know that the level that exists between the Champions League and the Europa League is quite considerable. Therefore, they consider that the reinforcements for the different plots are more than an obligation, Roberto Olabe is clear about that. Thus, a few weeks ago before the summer market opens, the manager already closed his first signing.

For weeks they had been talking about the possibility that the San Sebastian team had, in executing the return of the winger Álvaro Odriozola. Well, that probability has increased to the point that sources close to the real environment confirm that the signing will indeed take place. Until a few days ago, the team that was closest to his signing was Athletic Club.
Perhaps it was qualifying for the Champions League that finished convincing the Basque winger to return once more to the Txuri Urdin club. Right now the player can’t take the ostracism he’s experiencing at Real Madrid any longer, and he’s already packing his bags to return to San Sebastián. However, there is something pending and very important.
Olabe tries to solve the dilemma posed by Real Madrid with the sale of Odriozola
Although the right-back is a more than fixed discard for Florentino Pérez and Carlo Ancelotti, they will not let him out for less than 5 million euros. The real sports management does not agree with that price, since it is a footballer who urgently needs to be released, because they need a place for their signings.
In addition, Álvaro Odriozola has 1 year left on his contract, so asking for his base price (5 kilos) is not a good deal. The most important thing is already there, the lane’s decision to return to Real Sociedad. Now what is missing is for Roberto Olabe to get the perfect formula to convince Florentino Pérez, to release one of his discards.
