Odegaard has impressed for Norwegian side Stromsgodset, and has already made his debut with Norway national team, in a friendly game against the United Arab Emirates in August.
With such an impressive record, it is no wonder that so many teams are trying to seduce him, especially since his contract with Stromsgodset will expire in December 2015.
The player’s father has claimed up to 30 teams have already contacted him about a possible transfer. Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly two of the clubs that have shown a strong interest.
Although Barcelona seem to be the front runner to sign him, Odegaard recently rubbished rumours of him having accepting an invitation from Barcelona to visit La Masia.
“It’s flattering, but there’s nothing with Barcelona,” he told Norwegian newspaper VG.
Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund are also keeping tabs on Europe’s new rising star.
I hope Barca signs him, he looks promising. Make a comment.
