Real Madrid 'to keep Martin Odegaard in bid to lure Erling Braut Haaland'

Real Madrid want to keep hold of Martin Odegaard as they believe that the midfielder could play a role in convincing Borussia Dortmund's Erling Braut Haaland to join the club.

Real Madrid are reportedly keen to keep hold of Martin Odegaard as they are confident that the midfielder could play a role in convincing Erling Braut Haaland to join the club.

Odegaard is currently on loan at Arsenal, and there have been suggestions that the Gunners are keen to sign the Norway international on a long-term basis during this summer's transfer window.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the 22-year-old's close relationship with his fellow Norway international Haaland means that he is unlikely to be allowed to leave the Bernabeu.

Haaland has again been in excellent scoring form for Borussia Dortmund during the 2020-21 campaign, finding the back of the net on 25 occasions in 24 appearances in all competitions.

The 20-year-old, who will have a £68m release clause in his contract next summer, is thought to be wanted by the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Madrid continue to be credited with an interest in the striker, though, and Haaland recently said that it is "nice" to be linked with the Spanish champions.
