New details surrounding the future of Martin Odegaard have emerged. In statements made to NOS, Odegaard has let it be known that his agent and Real Madrid have already begun negotiations over what will happen to the player. “My agent is already speaking with them [Real Madrid] about some things. We will see what is best for my development and then make a decision together” assured the young Norwegian.

The talented and technically supreme, Odegaard, has been in sensational form all season, as covered by Managing Madrid. His 8 goals and 9 assists have kept an average Vitesse side fighting for a potential European spot. Zidane, who has worked with Odegaard in the past at Castilla, will need to make a decision before the start of next season. Ajax have been heavily linked with a move, but Madrid would likely prefer to loan Odegaard out to a team in another league (i.e. Spain, England, or Germany) or sell-him with a buy-back clause.
