After completing his first training sessions with Real Madrid's first team this Thursday, Martin Ødegaard appears to be set to make his debut with Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid Castilla on Sunday (11:30 CET, live on RealMadridTV), as his rights finally arrived in Madrid this morning.
Esta mañana ha llegado el tránsfer de Odegaard. Podría jugar el domingo en el campo del Trival. Decidirá el sábado Zidane si debuta... o no.— José Luis Sánchez (@JLSanchez78) January 30, 2015
That's the main reason why Ødegaard completed this Friday's session with Castilla. If he is going to play the matches for Zidane's squad, it makes sense for him to prepare those games with his teammates. It will ultimately be Zinedine Zidane's call, but Ødegaard's availability definitely helps Castilla's depth on their run to Segunda División. He should be a crucial starter on this squad, something that would allow him to develop as a player while also helping Real Madrid's B team.
