Los Blancos chase Norwegian wonderkid…
Our hopes of securing Norwegian 15-year-old sensation Martin Odegaard have been dealt a blow after Spanish publication MARCA released the news that Real Madrid have offered him a five year professional deal.
The playmaker is one of the most sought after talents in world football right now, and he’s already visited a plethora of top European clubs including Bayern Munich, Ajax and Real Madrid themselves this term.
He was scheduled to visit Melwood before Christmas, and he still will unless a deal with the Spanish is quickly tied up.
Odegaard turns 16 on December 17th, and he’ll be able to sign professional terms on that day, and Real Madrid are clearly keen to bully themselves to the front of the queue.
The player is a massive Liverpool fan though, which could still work in our favour if we worked quickly enough to persuade him to join.
Despite his age, he’s a key player for Stromgodset in Norway, and has won full international caps already.
