CM: Milan and Liverpool notified as Real Madrid take firm stance on €40m midfielder

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are among the clubs who have shown a strong interest in Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard, a report claims, but they are set to be disappointed.

Tuttosport reported (via MilanNews) that Odegaard is a player prospective new manager Ralf Rangnick would love to work with at Milan, due to the face he can play as a central midfielder, attacking midfielder or on either wing.

Meanwhile, Don Balon recently stated Liverpool also want to sign Odegaard, with Jurgen Klopp confident that the club can put together the financial package needed to lure the €40m-rated man to England.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milan are among the clubs that have shown a concrete interest in the Norway international and are open to making an investment on him like they did with Theo Hernandez a year ago.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid have taken a totally different stance this time: Florentino Perez absolutely does not want to sell Odegaard outright and only wish to send him out on loan, a formula that does not convince Milan.

That’s why the priority goes to Real Sociedad for another year, then he will be assessed by Real Madrid ahead of the 2021-22 season.
