Transfer Market: Ajax want Odegaard and could offer Real Madrid close to 20 million euros
Transfer Market Has played well at Vitesse
Ajax are interested in acquiring the services of Martin Odegaard, Real Madrid‘s midfielder who is currently on loan at Vitesse in the Eredivisie.
The 20-year-old has shone in the Dutch top flight this season as his five goals and six assists have helped lead Vitesse to fifth in the table.
As such, that has attracted the attention of Ajax and their offer could be close to 20 million euros, according to Radio MARCA.
Madrid, meanwhile, are not considering an exit for the much-hyped playmaker.
Florentino Perez speaks well of Odegaard and that confidence was reflected in the Norwegian signing a contract renewal to 2021.
However, midfielder likes the idea of staying in the Netherlands.
Last summer, for instance, Los Blancos hoped that Odegaard would go on loan to a club in Spain, but the player wanted to go to Vitesse because he knew that it is a league that suits his style of play.
When asked about his future and Ajax‘s interest, Odegaard was coy as he left the door open.
“Nobody knows what can happen in the future,” he told Voetbal International.
Ajax have the funds available after selling Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona for 75m euros, plus 11m in variables, with the Dutchman set to arrive at the Camp Nou in the summer.
