Manchester United, Liverpool 'to wait for Martin Odegaard'

Manchester United and Liverpool could be made to wait before moving to sign Norway's 15-year-old international Martin Odegaard, according to the player's father.

Norway's teenage star Martin Odegaard is willing to wait and develop his game before moving to a big European club, according to his father.

The 15-year-old Stromsgodset midfielder is rumoured to be attracting interest from several top clubs, including Manchester United and Liverpool, but the teenager may take his time before such a transfer takes place.

His father Hans Erik was quoted by the Daily Star as saying: "In the end it's all about development. Nothing else matters.

"I'm allergic to boys who are satisfied getting into an academy or winning."

Odegaard became Norway youngest international when he featured in last month's friendly against the United Arab Emirates.
