Chelsea manager José Mourinho has admitted he is curious about where Norwegian soccer sensation Martin Ødegaard will be playing in the future, but denied Chelsea will become the 15-year-old's next club.
Mourinho answered: “I have heard a lot about him. I have read that he will be going to 25 clubs. I would like to know who he will go to.”
At the same time, the Chelsea manager said Ødegaard is not part of the plans under his leadership at Stamford Bridge club right now.
“We are not in a position to compete with twenty-five other clubs for him. We are a different profile of club,” said Mourinho.
