Chelsea transfers: Jose Mourinho responds to Martin Odegaard reports

The Chelsea manager says the Blues are not considering a bid for Martin Odegaard

Jose Mourinho has ruled out a Chelsea move for Norwegian wonderkid Martin Odegaard.

The 15-year-old midfielder is understood to have attracted interest from a host of European clubs in recent months, including Liverpool and the west London side.

However, the Chelsea boss was quick to pour cold water on suggestions that the Blues could be set to table a bid for the Stromsgodset youngster.

“I heard about him,” said Mourinho, whose side host Tottenham in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

“He goes to 25 clubs. I wonder which one, where is he going?

“We are not in condition to be one of these 25 clubs, we are not the right profile. We cannot be in the auction.”
