MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid is sending right back Álvaro Odriozola on loan to Italian club Fiorentina.
The 25-year-old Odriozola joined Madrid on a transfer worth 30 million euros (now $35 million) from Real Sociedad in 2018. But he has struggled to earn playing time.
Madrid announced the move on Saturday.
Odriozola spent the second half of the 2019-2020 season also on loan, at Bayern Munich.
Odriozola made 16 appearances last season for Madrid, scoring two goals. He has not played for Madrid this season.
