Coming from Strømsgodset in 2014, Martin Ødegaard was initially expected to have a bright future at Real Madrid.
In his first season at Los Blancos, Ødegaard also made his debut in the Real Madrid senior squad, when facing Getafe.
Unfortunately, the language and policy constraints of Los Blancos that asked the Norwegian player to train with two teams, senior and Real Madrid Castilla (reserve team), made him unable to find his best performance. After failing to find the best performance, El Real finally decided to lend Ødegaard to SC Heerenveen for two seasons.
Two seasons strengthen Heerenveen, his appearance is also far from extraordinary words. The 19-year-old player can only record four goals in 43 matches he has played in each competition. When the loan period was up, Ødegaard returned to the Real Madrid squad.
He has also been given the opportunity to play in the pre-season match of the 2018/19 season by new coach, Julen Lopetegui. Nevertheless, Ødegaard doesn't seem to be included in Lopetegui's plan. Because according to reports from Football Espana, this Norwegian player, will return 'schooled' by El Real.
This time, the Eredivisie club Vitesse Arnhem, who is rumored to be using Ødegaard's services in the 2018/19 season. Ødegaard's loan process to Vitesse Arnhem is likely to take place soon after he is not included in the Real Madrid squad that will face Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.
