Odegaard tipped for January move

The highest-paid teenager in world football, Real Madrid’s Martin Odegaard is not enjoying life at Santiago Bernabeu.

Having made only one first-team performance for Los Blancos since his 2015 move from Stromsgodset, the 17-year-old talented midfielder’s impact has been limited to Spanish football’s third tier at Real Madrid Castilla.

La Liga giants are now prepared to let the Norwegian youngster leave on loan during January in order to gain first-team experience elsewhere as it is getting highly unlikely that Odegaard will be given a piece of action by Zinedine Zidane this season.

Odegaard was linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu during summer, but FIFA rules banned the loans of underage players. With Odegaard turning 18 in December, the January transfer window will be the perfect opportunity for him to be shipped out.

According to Spanish media outlet Marca, Ligue 1 outfit Rennes are looking for a possibility to land the hot prospect during winter.

Rennes have already approached Real Madrid once a couple of months ago and the club advisor Mikael Silvestre has confirmed that the French side are thinking about returning for the Norwegian wonderboy.
