PHOTO: £12m Liverpool, Chelsea, United linked teen harassed while on international duty

Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea linked Martin Odegaard has been harassed by the media while on international duty with Norway.

Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are all among the sides thought to be tracking the future of teenage attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard.

He’s already made his first senior appearance for the Norwegian national side and has been called up again to the senior ranks for the current international break.

He was pounced upon by members of the press while away with the national side, with ex-Norway star Jan Aage Fjortoft publishing a picture of the youngster apparently enclosed on all sides by members of the media.

Barcelona are reportedly the first club to make a big play to sign him from current side Stromsgodset although Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United are all well placed in terms of finance and infrastructure to make moves of their own.

Barca are thought to have invited the youngster and his father to the club to talk over a possible future move, which certainly doesn’t mean the Premier League sides are out of the running.
