Official: Real Madrid confirm Odegaard deal


The Norwegian teenager was coveted by several sides in Europe, but it is the European champions who have won the race to sign him

Real Madrid have confirmed the signing of Norwegian sensation Martin Odegaard.

The 16-year-old has been highly coveted in recent months as he toured Europe to look for the ideal club to continue his development.

Madrid, Bayern Munich and Ajax were considered the favourites to sign him with speculation building in the last week that the teenager was close to a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

And now the European champions have confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Stromsgodset and will present the player to the media on Thursday afternoon.

“Real Madrid C. F. and Stromsgodset Fotball have reached an agreement for the transfer of Martin Odegaard,” a statement read.

“After undergoing a medical exam, the player will hold a press conference with the director of Institutional Relations, Emilio Butragueno, on 22 January at 1:30pm CET.”
