[Real Madrid star Martin Odegaard reveals Barcelona tried to sign him] There were many teams that called my father and, yes, he travelled to Barcelona once, but in the end it was not the move for me. I think my football would fit Barcelona, but I believe that’s also the case with Real Madrid. They want to win well and play with that offensive style … I like Spanish football where all teams are strong

[he is looking forward to the challenge of playing against Ernesto Valverde’s side, and is particularly eager to lock horns with Lionel Messi] Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best in the world and it’s special to play against them. I like his style, of course. I can learn a lot from him by seeing how he does things, but he’s on another level and I don’t ever want to compare my game with him, he’s amazing. Barcelona are playing very well just now but I think we can beat the best teams. Against Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, we were fine. It will be special and we want to play a good game and give them problems

[Martin Odegaard insists he is very happy at Real Sociedad and wants to stay for the duration of his two-year loan spell, rather than return to Real Madrid] When people ask if I will be here to play in the Champions League, I always say that I’m very happy here and that the plan is to play for La Real for two years. Playing against the best teams in the world is something that is great for a player and it’s a dream for me. However, there are some very good teams in the fight, like Getafe, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia

Two things make me very excited, as we want to win the Copa del Rey and qualify for the Champions League. I spend every day looking at the photo in Zubieta in which you can see the cup which was won in Zaragoza. I learned very quickly of the importance of this picture and now I look at it with envy. It’s been a long time for the fans and it’s normal for them to be excited, we are too

[Sociedad have built a strong squad this season, with players such as Adnan Januzaj and Nacho Monreal adding both quality and depth] We have very good players and a deep squad, in which changes can be made without noticing them

[On his personal goal] For young players, and for me right now, it is crucial to have game time. At Madrid I think it’s difficult to obtain. There are a lot of great players there and competition is huge. It was obvious that the best thing I could do was ask for another loan.

My goal is still to play with Real Madrid. That’s why I signed with them. For me, that is the place to be, I feel like I have improved in these last two years, I’m a better player, stronger and more mature
