Martin Odegaard turned 16 this week, meaning the prodigy can now legally sign professional terms with a club. Rather than solve anything, it has just heightened speculation about the youngster’s future.
Having already paid visits to Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Liverpool amongst others, the youngster living the life most boys dream of is now in Barcelona.
According to Norwegian paper VG, the Stromsgodset player will tour the club’s new training and fitness facilities and watch the team play against Cordoba this weekend.

While he will struggle to get any playing time at the Nou Camp, there’s probably no front three in football the youngster can learn more from than the Lionel Messi/Luis Suarez/Neymar combination that Catalan club boast up front.
Barca themselves are walking a fine line when it comes to snapping up young players. They are currently restricted by a transfer ban that FIFA imposed last year because of their illegal dealings in recruiting U18s between 2009 and 2013.
The Odegaard tour shows no signs of slowing: his father Hans has said that they are keen to visit as many clubs as possible before deciding on Martin’s future.
