Real Madrid wonder kid Martin Odegaard, who will play the 2019-2020 season on loan with Real Sociedad, was unveiled at Anoeta this Monday morning and delivered some quotes about why he joins Real Sociedad.

“I had other options and there was interest but I think Real is the perfect club for me because I will have chances to keep making progress,” said Odegaard, who spent the last three seasons in the Eredivisie with Heerenveen and Vitesse.

“I cae here because Real Sociedad is a club where the young players are able to develop. This was my decision. Real Madrid wanted the best for me and showed a lot of respect. They want me to be happy and to develop into the best player I can be,” he added.

Odegaard will be expected to earn a spot in Real Sociedad’s starting XI and show consistency. If he can make an impact in La Liga maybe he will be able to play for Real Madrid next season.
