Real Madrid are desperate to sign Norwegian wonderkid Martin Odegard, football’s most talked about 15-year-old, reports respected Spanish journalist Jose Luis Sanchez, who works for TV station La Sexta.

The tweet translates as:
“Real Madrid want to sign Martin Ødegaard ( Norwegian, 15 years). It is the second time he’s been invited to Valdebebas (the training ground). Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are also interested.”
Odegard has recently accepted an offer to train with Ajax in Holland, the Metro reported, but it appears that other European giants have not given up the chase to sign him professionally once he turns 16.
Odegard currently plays for Strømsgodset IF, and his performances since the start of the season have earned him a call-up to the Norwegian national team, for whom he has already won two senior caps.
The attacking midfielder is publicly a huge Liverpool fan, although according to Sanchez, the Reds now trail European giants such as Man United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid themselves for his signature.
Odegard prides himself on sensational technical and dribbling ability, and if he fulfils his mind-boggling potential, he could develop into one of the world’s very best footballers.
