Arsenal fans react as Zidane leaves Real Madrid
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter after it was reported that Zinedine Zidane has decided to leave Real Madrid this summer.
The Gunners have been monitoring Zidane’s situation incredibly closely with Mikel Arteta’s men looking at extending Martin Odegaard’s stay in North London.
Odegaard arrived during the January transfer window. And while he endured some difficult periods at the Emirates, he arguably proved to be an incredibly exciting signing.
There were plenty of moments where the Norwegian showed exactly why he has been something of a household name since the age of 15.
Unsurprisingly, Arsenal are interested in keeping Odegaard beyond this season.
However, it appears that their hopes have been dealt a huge blow.
The Sunday Mirror (23/5; page 74) reported at the weekend that Odegaard may be allowed to leave on loan once again – but on two conditions.
Zidane exit may make fresh Odegaard move unlikely
It was claimed that Luka Modric signing a new deal would boost Arsenal’s hopes. And it was also deemed to be crucial that Zidane stays.
Modric has penned his new contract. However, as reported by the Guardian, Zidane has decided to leave the Bernabeu.
And following the news, plenty of Arsenal fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment.
‘Odegaard will be going back to Madrid’
Many feel that Zidane’s decision has ended their hopes of holding onto Odegaard.
Some seem less concerned with other names being linked. But for others, it is a real shame that their hopes of keeping Odegaard have seemingly been dealt a huge blow.
Here is how some of the Arsenal fans have reacted to the news…
So that Zidane is leaving, does that also mean Odegaard will be going back to Madrid?! 😩

Zidane out, so Odegaard definitely going back to Madrid. Arteta just has to move on from Martin and go for Buendia/Aoaur.

Zidane is leaving Madrid. Looks like Odegaard will be returning then.

Zidane leaving would probably mean Odegaard staying at Real Madrid. Although he did not live up to my expectations but I had started to warm upto him in the last few games. Intelligent player and has great technical ability. Settled in fairly well in the PL. Needs experience.

Odegaard decision probably got more difficult now with Zidane out

Zidane gone? I guess so are our chances of signing Odegaard and I’m okay with that. As long as we sign Aouar and Buendia or another creative specialist

With Zidane out, Odegard back to Madrid.
I’m not crying you are 😭😭😭😭
