It’s official. Real Madrid have sold Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard to Arsenal for around €40 million.

Real Madrid C. F. and Arsenal FC have agreed to the transfer of Martin Ødegaard.

Real Madrid would thank to thank the player for his professionalism and exemplary behaviour shown during the time he has spent at the club.

The club would also like to wish the player and his family the best of luck during the next stage of his career.

Neither club announced whether or not Real Madrid keeps some kind of options to bring hm back, but sources told Managing Madrid before the deal was officially confirmed that Los Blancos will have a first-refusal option, meaning that if Arsenal ever decide to sell Odegaard, Madrid will be able to automatically match the offer they received in order to sign him again.

Odegaard will wear number 8 for Arsenal and won’t be available for this weekend’s match against Chelsea.
