Real Madrid wonder kid Martin Odegaard will not make his return to the club in the upcoming transfer window if midfielder Luka Modric stays in the club, something which would obviously have a huge impact on Odegaard’s potential minutes. That’s what a report published today on MARCA suggests.

Odegaard has always been keen on staying with Real Sociedad for another season, quite possibly because he knows that it might be tough for him to earn relevant minutes over a veteran like Luka Modric. While the Croatian star is on his decline and Odegaard would likely play many minutes to give Modric some rest, at the same time it’s also clear that coach Zinedine Zidane would likely trust Modric in big games, as he’s done many times this season.
