French Team Will Try to Sign Again Real Madrid Rising Talent


Martin Odegaard is still playing with Real Madrid Castilla in Segunda B, the Third Division of the Spanish football. The Norwegian was signed in the January transfer market in 2015 from Stromsgodset. Two years after, he has barely play with the first team and the player need to have minutes in a higher level team.

In this season, he has played 7 games with Castilla, starting in the initial 11, scoring only one goal. The winger was expected to bright in his second season with the team, but he’s not performing great appearances. The club directors think that Odegaard should leave the club and improve somewhere else.

This summer, Odegaard was expected to leave on loan. Actually, the French Club Rennes have everything tied up to bring Odegaard on board. However, FIFA rules about the loan of players under 18 years old made the deal more difficult. The Norwegian will turn 18 this December, so this problem will disappear for the winter transfer window.

Mikael Silvestre, former Manchester United player, spoke about this interest of Rennes: “We haven’t forgotten about him. In January we’ll see if the is an option”, Silvestre said representing the French team. Zinedine Zidane knew very well Rennes and he agreed on giving the player on loan to the Ligue One club.

In these two years in the Spanish capital, Odegaard had few options to play with Real Madrid first team. He made his debut in La Liga against Getafe in May 2015 with Carlo Ancelotti on the bench. Zidane brought him to the pre-season tour in the United States but he couldn’t enjoy any minute with the team. Perhaps, he could have more chances in a top flight club in another league because he has shown his quality with his national team and Odegaard was one of the youngsters wanted for every single top club in Europe.
