Norway teenager Martin Odegaard appears poised for another loan move away from Real Madrid after he became the only member of the first-team squad omitted from the UEFA Super Cup.
Odegaard, 19, was not included in the 29-name list that head coach Julen Lopetegui selected for Wednesday’s clash in Estonia against city rivals Atletico. All five goalkeepers were contained in the official travelling party, plus the injured duo of Jesus Vallejo and Alvaro Odriozola.
AS reports that this snub provides a broad hint that another temporary deal is set to be agreed. The 12-times-capped senior international spent 2017/18 in the Netherlands with Heerenveen, where he scored three times in 38 Eredivisie matches.
Odegaard has been linked with a switch to England’s Championship.
He joined Los Blancos amid a wave of publicity three years ago from Stromsgodset. This followed training visits to Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.
His only La Liga appearance, to date, came on May 23, 2015. This run-out from the bench in the final-day, 7-3 victory against Getafe made him Madrid’s youngest-ever player at 16 years and 157 days.
