Manchester United and Liverpool are both plotting a move for Martin Odegaard.

It was reported earlier this week that Arsenal had been eyeing the young Real Madrid midfielder as a potential replacement for Mesut Ozil.

Odegaard joined Madrid in 2015 at the age of 16, signing for £4.1million, but has only played one competitive game for the Spanish giants.

The Dane has been shipped out on loan to Herenveen, Vitesse and Real Sociedad, playing 97 league games across the three loan spells, but Zinedine Zidane’s side are still yet to deem him ready to represent them on the weekly basis.

Odegaard scored his first La Liga goal against Mallorca in August and produced a dazzling display last month in Sociedad’s win over Atletico Madrid.

The youngster’s performances have not gone unnoticed and The Sun say Manchester United are keeping tabs on his progress in Spain ahead of a possible move.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and even Manchester City are keeping tabs on the midfielder’s progress.
