Highly rated Norwegian teenager Martin Odegaard committed to representing Chelsea but not in the way you may think.
Odegaard represented the Blues in a FIFA 15 match up against Cardiff City’s Mats Daehli, who represented Manchester United.
Unfortunately for the £12 million rated 15-year-old, he wasn’t able to get the better of his teammate with Daehli winning the virtual contest 2-1.
Speculation is ongoing over Odegaard’s future with the latest reports suggesting that Barcelona are trying to get an edge in the race to sign him, inviting him to Spain to look around the facilities at the club.
Odegaard is thought to have over 30 clubs interested in his future, after he became one of the youngest ever players to win a senior international cap with Norway.
Odegaard could feature this evening as Norway take on Malta away from home this evening in the next batch of Euro 2016 qualifying games.
