Celtic are trying to sign Real Madrid teenager Martin Ødegaard on loan for the 2015-16 season [AS]

Momentum appears to be building for the departure of Martin Ødegaard from Real Madrid this summer.

The 16-year-old Norwegian star has focused plenty of attention this week, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic advising the teenager to ditch his dad if he is to progress in the world of football, while at the same time stories are bubbling up suggesting the Scandinavian teenager could be about to be farmed out of Real Madrid.

Ødegaard, the most expensive teenager in world football, has struggled to successfully bed into his new surroundings at the Santiago Bernabeu, and it now looks like Los Blancos want the playmaker to gain experience away from the club in the 2015-16 season.

In that regard, Spanish paper AS today announce that Celtic want to sign Ødegaard on a season long loan.

Celtic could be a good fit for Ødegaard, as not only would the teenager get essential top flight playing time, but he could also participate in the Champions League.

Moreover, the Scottish champs have good relations with the player, as Celtic manager Ronny Deila was Ødegaard’s coach at Strømsgodset.
