Man United on full alert after long-term target asks to leave Real Madrid

Long-term Manchester Unitd target Martin Odegaard has reportedly put Premier League clubs on red alert after telling Real Madrid he wants to leave.

The Norwegian ace is furious over his lack of minutes this term despite starring on loan at Real Sociedad last term, and he is fed up of having to sit on the bench ever week

And Spanish publication Marca have claimed Odegaard has told Zinedine Zidane he wants to leave the Bernabeu as soon as possible, and the reports suggests that could spark an epic transfer battle between England’s top clubs for one of world football’s top-rated playmakers.

United were heavily linked with a move for the young man well before he signed for Madrid a few years ago, and have been keeping a close eye on his situation at the Spanish giants, although their interest in the player has wavered over the past few transfer windows.

If the reports are true and Odegaard has told Madrid that he wants to leave the club, then why not make the move to the Premier League, there is alot of interest in the man. So even though United are linked, it would be a shock to see them make a move with all the talent they have in that area of the pitch.

But as we said, there are a number of clubs that are also interested and they will surely be put on alert, as they probably believe that they can be the club to help the talented midfielder reach his true potential in the game
