Real Madrid must pay Real Sociedad €4m if they recall Martin Odegaard early from his loan spell, report Diario AS.
The Norway international has starred during this campaign for La Real after joining them on a two-year loan deal from Los Blancos.
Odegaard had spent the last two seasons out on loan, at Heerenveen and Vitesse respectively, before joining the Basque club at the start of the season.
It is said that should the capital club wish to recall the 20-year-old from his loan spell at the Anoeta, they would have to pay the Basque club a €4m compensation package.
It claims that Madrid have already begun their operation to return the forward-thinking midfielder midway through his loan spell, and they believe the player is open to such a move.
The report continues that due to the good relationship between the two club presidents, it is more than feasible to think that Madrid would not pay such a fee and may instead offer La Real other incentives.
