The Daily Mirror reported at the weekend that Wolves are ‘plotting an ambitious transfer swoop for Real Madrid star Martin Odegaard’ in the January window.
With the player impressing on his loan spell at Real Sociedad, with two goals and two assists so far, he’s reportedly caught attention from the Premier League side.
It’s been said that the Santiago Bernabeu side would listen to offers for the wonderkid, who could cost up to £20m on a permanent deal.
But as we’ve been reading in the Spanish media today, the slant is actually that Real Madrid still have some big plans to use Odegaard in the first team.
Defensa Central comes up with a story saying the deal with Real Sociedad was supposed to be for two years, and for legal reasons, the official agreement is only one season.
But due to the player’s great start at his new club, Real Madrid are now set to revaluate the situation in the summer, and decide if he’s really staying at Sociedad for another year.
There are also some comments on the possibility of bringing him back to the Santiago Bernabeu in January, and there’s no clause in the contract which would allow Real Madrid to do it. So they would have to find an agreement and pay Real Sociedad for breaking the loan spell, and that’s considered to be highly unlikely.
Now with Real Madrid interested in using the player and having no clause to bring him back in January, a Wolves move sounds pretty out of the question.
