Real Madrid want Carvajal alternative

Real Madrid are closing in on a summer transfer for Real Sociedad defender Alvaro Odriozola, suggest reports in the Daily Express.

Los Blancos had set their sights on a new right-back to lessen the strain on Dani Carvajal, who was diagnosed with a heart condition earlier in the season following a viral infection, according to Diario Gol.

Odriozola would command a fee in the region of £18m, but the 22-year-old has already said: “I am only thinking about Real Sociedad – that’s the only thing in my head.”
