Real Madrid boss Zidane approves Odriozola offer

Real Madrid are stepping up their pursuit of Real Sociedad fullback Alvaro Odriozola.

Marca says Odriozola's dramatic rise has been noted by Real Madrid who are ready to make a raid for him at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has already made his debut for Julen Lopetegui's national side and he is part of a bright crop of young players that have helped Sociedad make a bright start to the campaign.

Zinedine Zidane has given his backing to the club's technical department who are keen on the player to provide competition at right back.

Much will depend on how well Achraf does this season as understudy to Dani Carvajal in deciding whether Los Blancos do make a raid for Odriozola who has a buy-out clause of 40 million euros.
