For a player who won’t turn 21 till December this year, the Norwegian has already attracted plenty of fame during his short career as a professional footballer.
Much of the fame which he enjoys owes to the performances given by the 20-year-old before he signed for Real Madrid in 2015, as his performances since then have been nothing short of disappointing.
That hasn’t stopped the likes of Man City, Man United and Arsenal to pursue the player’s signature. All three of the club feels that if given proper game time, the Norwegian can still fulfil his potential.
Given his young age, that claim has its merits. The Norwegian might be only 20 but he already has 2 full seasons of senior level football under his belt, a sign that he has what it takes to be an early learner.
Still, despite their interest in the player, none of the Premier League clubs are expected to make their move next summer, as Odegaard will still have a year remaining on his two-year loan contract which he signed with Real Sociedad earlier this year.
