The teenager will apparently start training with the first team immediately, but will play for the ‘B’ side until the end of the season unless he proves he is good enough to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in the senior set-up.
The La Liga giants have supposedly bought a villa for the youngster to live in, and offered his father a job at the club to help push the deal through.
According to publication up to four clubs were still in contention to sign the player until recently, despite it seeming obvious from the outside that he was going to sign for Los Blancos. Arsenal, Liverpool, and Bayern Munich were the three others involved in the chase.
Whilst a move to a club of Real Madrid’s stature is a tough one to turn down one does wonder how easily it will prove for Odegaard to fashion a career in the Spanish capital given the sheer weight of talent at Carlo Ancelotti’s disposal.
