Manchester United are reportedly following Real Madrid wonderkid, Martin Odegaard, firmly as he impresses on loan at Real Sociedad this campaign.
The Norway international seems one of the most exciting young players in Europe at the moment, having shown what he can do when given regular playing time in La Liga this campaign.
According to Don Balon, Manchester United are now keeping close tabs on him, though the report goes on to say that any offer for the player would have to be ‘astronomical’ for Real Madrid to consider letting him go.
Martin Odegaard seems just what Manchester United need right now after a difficult season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side often lacking spark and creativity in the final third.
The January signing of Bruno Fernandes has helped a little, but Red Devils fans will undoubtedly be hoping for more signings to replace flops such as Jesse Lingard in attacking midfield.
Martin Odegaard seems ideal, and at 21 will only continue to get better with experience.
Though, if it really takes an ‘astronomical’ figure to persuade Real Madrid to sell, it remains to be seen if this would really be the best value deal the Red Devils can find on the market this summer.
