Odegaard, who is the youngest player to ever represent Norway, has attracted interest from Manchester United, City, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, while he also trained with Liverpool last week.

However, he looks likely to make a decision based on where he has the most chance of developing and making the first team quickly – with Dutch side Ajax rumoured to be the current favourites.

The player will be guided in negotiations by his father, Hans Erik, who was a professional footballer in the Norwegian league and who is now the assistant manager at Norwegian club, Mjondalen.

Odegaard junior made his international debut for Norway against the United Arab Emirates in August and then became the youngest player ever to feature in a European Championship qualifier, when he came on Norway against Bulgaria in October aged 15 years, 253 days.
