Manchester United face Premier League competition for £25m rated Real Madrid starlet

Martin Odegaard Real Madrid

Manchester United have reportedly sent scouts to watch Real Madrid propsect Martin Odegaard, but will have to fight off Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City for his signing.

Odegaard joined Real Madrid at 16 years-old in 2015 from Norwegian outfit Stromsgodset, after taking a saga that saw the prodigal youngster tour around Europe to find his best suited club.

After spending time playing in Madrid's youth teams, Odegaard began a series of consecutive loan spells at Heerenveen, Vitesse, and now Real Sociedad.

This year, the Norwegian has been lighting up La Liga - with two goals and two assists to his name already.

Manchester United want continue their strategy of recruiting young talent and see Odegaard as the perfect signing, according to The Sun.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to be a big fan of his compatriot and will hope he can lure the playmaker to Old Trafford.

However, the Reds face stiff competition from Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool.

The Gunners see Odegaard as a natural replacement for Mesut Özil, who is seemingly out of favour under Unai Emery.

Odegaard has created more chances than anyone else in La Liga this season.

Manchester City and Liverpool are thought to see the 20-year-old as the key to their next stage of evolution as the Premier League's top two clubs.

All the interested parties believe they could snap Odegaard up for £25million - with the promise of regular top-flight football.

However, Zinedine Zidane is reportedly considering recalling Odegaard as he looks to remedy ongoing issues for Los Blancos.
