Martin Odegaard proved his sublime ability with a brilliant free kick goal as Real Sociedad beat Osasuna 4-3 in La Liga.
The young Norwegian midfielder rose to prominence at the end of 2014 when Europe's elite all wanted him, before he moved to Real Madrid.
His career stalled for a moment but he has started showing his promise on loan at Heerenveen, Vitesse Arnhem and now Sociedad in recent years.
On Sunday he once again showed why he was such hot property as a teenager with an assist and a brilliant free kick goal against Osasuna.

I fucking love this loan move man, Odegaard is treated like Messi/Ronaldo there. Everything goes through him, he's the main man there. Biggest reason why he's so comfortable.- A. (@KaizerT8) December 22, 2019

Ødegaard is performing at a scary level this season, but consistency is the key. I have no doubt he'll continue, or even improve, on this next season. Madrid have a very tough decision this summer, bringing him back could work either way, stall his progress, or see him evolve.- Muddassir Hussain (@muddassirjourno) December 22, 2019
The Norwegian is only 21-years-old, and hints at a pretty decent future for his country with the combination with Erling Haaland, and still has every chance of breaking into the Real Madrid first team at some point.
He reportedly fell out with then under 19s manager Zinedine Zidane when he first arrived at the Bernabeu but he has made two La Liga appearances for the first team in the past.
He went on loan to Dutch side Heerenveen in the 2016/17 season and there were worries for his long term future at Real but he impressed so much there and at Vitesse that there were thoughts he could break into the first team this season.
Ajax were linked with a move for the midfielder last summer but he moved to Sociedad on loan instead and his form has proved that to be the right decision.
Will Odegaard become a first teamer with Real Madrid?
