Pep Guardiola tried to sign Real Madrid star Martin Odegaard when he coached FC Bayern Munich in 2015.

Odegaard was a 15-year-old child prodigy wanted by almost all of Europe when their paths crossed in Qatar.

Odegaard was in a camp with the Norwegian youth team when Bayern were training there and Guardiola was impressed with what he saw of the teenager on the training field.

The Catalan yelled to Jan Age Fjortoft, a former soccer player who was involved in the Norwegian soccer setup, “You have to take this boy to Munich, you have to take him to Munich! I will make him the best player in the world. ”

The anecdote was revealed in the Nordic newspaper Nettavisen in quotes from Diario AS. Odegaard was playing for Stromsgodset at the time, but is said to have had four clubs seriously interested in him: Liverpool, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

« Liverpool were his favorite club as a kid, » said Fjortoft. “I think the reason he ended up in Madrid was very simple. They had a second team, the other three clubs didn’t. The second team was coached by Zinedine Zidane – not a bad player and not a bad coach.

« Michael Reschke, who is now with Schalke, was responsible for recruiting Bayern at the time. I met him after Martin decided to go to Madrid and he said to me, “If I had known the second team would be so important, I would have built one. ‘”

Odegaard has spent most of his time in Madrid since loaning that decision with Heerenveen, Vitesse and Real Sociedad.

He shone at La Real last season and performed so well that Madrid called him back to the Santiago Bernabeu for two years for a year.

Odegaard will hope this will be the season when he finally realizes his much-lauded potential and becomes an important part of Zidane’s Madrid squad.
