Bayern Munich signed Spanish right-back Alvaro Odriozola on loan from Real Madrid until the end of the 2019-2020 season.

“After passing a medical, the 24-year-old right back has signed his contract at Saebener Strasse and will begin training with Bayern today,” the club said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Following internal discussions, we agreed to follow the wishes of head coach Hansi Flick in strengthening the defence and decided to go for Alvaro Odriozola. We are delighted about the signing and thank Real Madrid for the friendly and cooperative talks,” Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added.
