Real Madrid’s squad this season has a lot of depth, with many players having the ability to cover multiple positions. Two seasons ago, when Los Blancos suffered from more than 60 injuries, the need for more options became apparent. Last season, Antonio Pintus significantly improved the situation, and thus the need for backups is lower than before.

Because of improved overall fitness, there is less need to rotate, which prevents some players from getting the playing time they want. With a few exceptions, the regular players get the majority of the minutes on the pitch, and the bench players are rarely used. Even in the most recent match against Celtic, Carlo Ancelotti preferred to introduce Jesus Vallejo only after Real Madrid had established a far-reaching lead. Unless absolutely necessary, there is obviously less need for rotation.

Some players will be disheartened and frustrated as a result of their limited playing time. It should come as no surprise if they prefer to leave the club to seek more opportunities elsewhere, and there appears to be growing interest from Juventus in signing one such player who has struggled to make it through at Real Madrid.

As reported by Foot Mercato, Juventus are interested in signing Real Madrid’s Alvaro Odriozola and have even already launched first contacts with the player’s entourage.

Juventus signing Odriozola from Real Madrid could benefit all parties

Real Madrid clearly do not see Odriozola as a long-term solution. Dani Carvajal has been consistent in his performances, and there appear to be fewer reasons to bench him. Even as a future backup, the club is already believed to be assessing the abilities of Vinicius Tobias, who impressed during preseason and is rapidly improving at Castilla.

As a result, Odriozola has slim, if any, hopes of breaking through. He had a good loan spell at Fiorentina and was fairly successful during his time there. In Serie A, the player is familiar with the game and its intricacies, and a move to Juventus will only benefit him because he would be expected to have far more opportunities to play.

The Old Lady is going through a period of decline and is finding it difficult to compete in Europe. Their defensive situation is concerning, and given their rumoured interest in Odriozola, it appears they are looking for quick solutions to the problem in order to regain their status.

If the rumoured interest materializes, Odriozola could have another opportunity to prove himself, and Real Madrid will be able to create place for the youngster Tobias in the first-team on occasion.
