Odegaard: I’m in contact with Real Madrid

Martin Odegaard has hit the ground running at Real Sociedad in the 2019/20 campaign and his parent club Real Madrid are closely following his progress.

The Norwegian midfielder has revealed that Los Blancos are content with his performances so far this season and they have sent him congratulatory messages.

“I am in contact with Real Madrid, as sometimes they write to me to tell me how they see me,” he told Eurosport Norway.

“They have congratulated me and praised my good start in the league.

“They have told me that they are happy with me.”

Odegaard went on to express his desire to see out his two-year loan agreement with the Basque side, before returning to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

“The idea is to respect [the loan deal],” he said.

“I am happy at the team, and so I want to continue here until my two years end.”

Spain take on Norway on Saturday and the 20-year-old looks forward to facing his former teammate and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.

“I don’t think Spain are worried about me,” he noted.

“They will play their game and they are not affected by the opponent.

“It’s always good to play against good players like Ramos.

“It will be a special game for that reason.”
