Manchester United are keeping tabs on 20-year-old Real Madrid starlet Martin Odegaard, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that Manchester United have been alerted to the Norway international’s excellent performances for Real Sociedad so far this season after he moved to the La Liga side on loan from Real Madrid.

The same article states that Ole Gunner Solskjaer wants to add Odegaard to his young team as the Manchester United boss continues his rebuilding project at Old Trafford.

According to the same story, the promising Norwegian playmaker could be available for £25m next summer if Real Madrid decide to sell Odegaard.

The Sun go on to state that Manchester United can expect to face competition for Odegaard’s signature from a number of top European clubs, including Liverpool FC and Manchester City.

A report in the Daily Mirror on Tuesday suggested that Arsenal are also interested in a deal to sign the Real Madrid starlet in the summer transfer window.

Odegaard hasn’t realised his potential at Real Madrid so far after his move to Real Madrid from Stromsgodset at the age of 16.

The on-loan Sociedad youngster has netted two goals and has made two assists in seven games in all competitions this term.
