Why Real Madrid starlet is the perfect player for Rangnick

Real Madrid rising star Martin Odegaard is the prototype of player that Ralf Rangnick loves and a transfer target of AC Milan.

AC Milan are considering a summer swoop for Real Madrid’s rising star Martin Odegaard currently in loan at Real Sociedad reports MilanNews.it. The Spanish club have an option to renew his loan for another year.

The Norwegian talent, after gaining valuable experience in Netherlands playing for Heerenveen and Vitesse, has exploded definitively in the Spanish Liga with Real Sociedad. This season Martin Odegaard has scored 7 goals and providing 8 assists in 28 appearances.

Odegaard a real jolly that, thanks to the potential help of Ralf Rangnick, could make the definitive leap in quality at the highest levels. The 21-year-old attacking midfielder, has a characteristic that the German professor really likes: ductility.

The Real Madrid wonderkid has shown that he knows how to adapt effectively in different roles. Being an attacking midfielder remains his main role but in recent years Odegaard has often played as central midfielder, right winging and left winging, always with excellent results. Perfect for the 4-4-2 and 3-5-2 formations that Rangnick prefers.

Technically and tactically signing Martin Odegaard would have several positive factors. Less economically, given that Real Madrid would like to bring him home and eventually sell him for no less than 40 million euros. A high figure that AC Milan can’t afford.

The desire of Odegaard himself, however, could make the difference. The Norwegian is pushing to leave Madrid thus helping AC Milan in their attempts to obtain a loan with the right to buy. The great relationship between Real Madrid and AC Milan could further facilitate a deal.
