In winter, FC Bavaria brought Spanish lawyer Alvaro Odriozola to Munich on a lease from Real Madrid. The 24-year-old did not leave a lasting impression: Only twice Coach Hansi Flick nominated the former national player until the coronation break. His departure in the summer is supposed to be decided.
At least the “Sport1” chief reporter Florian Plettenberg, who announced on Twitter that FC Bavaria does not have a purchase option for Odriozola and does not want to renegotiate.
In any case, the least had assumed a firm commitment. In Madrid, the birthplace of the Basque Country is still bound up to 2024. 2018, the royals had proudly transferred 30 million euros to San Sebastian to lure the then shooting star into the capital.
Although Odriozola left no significant traces at Real in the aftermath, the club is unlikely to be ready to sell him as a bargaining chip. That is also why the Bavarian bosses are waving away.
Lyons Kalulu apparently does not have a theme for the professional framework of FC Bavaria
According to “Sport1” the record master wants to “definitely” bring in another legal defender to enlarge Coach Flick’s options.
Some names have already made the round recently, including Pierre Kalulu of Olympique Lyon. For the professional framework of Munich, however, the 19-year-old was not yet a topic, says Plettenberg.
The right defensive side is considered a problem zone at FC Bavaria. Most of the time Benjamin Pavard performed there during the current season, but the French World Champion feels better inside.
Joshua Kimmich, once a secure bench in the four-ring, now plays in the defensive middle field. All the more reason to look for personal alternatives. However, Alvaro Odriozola will not take the vacant seat.
