The Los Blancos are keen to sell him and, according to ABC , they have now slashed their asking price to £34million.
Spanish newspaper AS earlier last week claimed that Spanish giants demanded £42m (€50m), however, confidently state that Odegaard is ‘heading to London’.
With both teams on the same page, the 22-year-old midfielder is likely to make a return to the Emirates Stadium.

Sky Sports reported on Saturday that AS Roma had agreed a £34m (€40m) fee for the English forward and will pass the medical within days.
That tallies with Corriere dello Sport , who claims that, while AS Roma are optimistic about their chances, the ‘pressing’ from the Gunners makes them a little ‘cautious’.

Corriere dello Sport says Marseille planning to hijack Lazio’s move for Torreira, who spent last campaign on loan with Atletico Madrid.
