Real snap up precocious Norway teenager Odegaard

22 January 2015, 10:43

Madrid - Real Madrid have agreed to sign teenage Norway midfielder Martin Odegaard from Stromsgodset pending a medical, the La Liga club said on Wednesday.

Real did not give details of financial terms but Spanish media reported they had agreed to pay around 3 million euros ($3.5 million) for the 16-year-old.

He will be presented to the media at Real's training base outside the Spanish capital on Thursday, the world and European champions said on their website (www.realmadrid.com).

Odegaard made his debut for Norwegian top-flight side Stromsgodset at the age of 15 and the playmaker's precocious talent has also attracted the attention of some of Real's fellow European heavyweights like Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

He became Norway's youngest international when he started against United Arab Emirates at the age of 15 years and 253 days in August, breaking a record that had stood for more than a century.
