Odegaard to be sent on loan before FIFA transfer ban takes effect

Madrid hope to be formally transfer of a one-year exchange boycott by FIFA before the week's over — expanding weight on them to race through Martin Odegaard's pending advance arrangement. Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen are competing for the mark of 17-year-old Norwegian with West Ham additionally demonstrating an enthusiasm for the player who Real let well enough alone for their European Super Cup squad on Monday. FIFA hit Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid with a one-year move boycott in January yet both clubs requested against the choice.
