Real Sociedad's Alvaro Odriozola cool on Real Madrid, Barcelona links

Alvaro Odriozola in action for Spain against Albania.

Real Sociedad defender Alvaro Odriozola has said he has no time to think about speculation linking him with Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Right-back Odriozola impressed on his senior debut for Spain in the World Cup qualifying win at home to Albania.

That added to speculation that Real, linked with a move for the 21-year-old in the summer, would trigger his €40 million release clause.

But speaking at a news conference, Odriozola said: "It is true that playing with Spain everything gets magnified, but I renewed my contract with La Real until 2022 for a reason.

"I am only thinking about Real Sociedad -- that's the only thing in my head."

"I do not stop to think about how my game with the national team went. I just try and do my job well, work hard and do not stop to think about what I did or did not do.

"I have already forgotten about all that and am focused on La Real."

Odriozola, a former youth team winger, made his first-team debut for Sociedad in January and has since made 25 appearances in La Liga.

He added: "These last nine months have been a bit like this -- everything has happened very quickly.

"You have no time to look at the past, rather the future, or in this case the present."
