Arsenal and Liverpool will be snubbed by Norwegian wonderkid Martin Odegaard, with the Stromsgodset star instead choosing to sign for German giants Bayern Munich.
Reports in Germany now suggest that the 15 year old is set to take up an offer from Bayern to sign him.
The Bundesliga champions hosted Odegaard this week, with the player training with their side.
While the same occurred at both Arsenal and Liverpool, it now seems as though Odegaard preferred his time with Pep Guardiola’s side.
The news will come as a hammerblow to Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool, who seemed to have the best chance of capturing Odegaard.
He is known to be a childhood fan of the Reds, which should have tempted him into signing for them.
Odegaard is a record holder, as the youngest player to appear in a senior European Championships qualifier.
He was 15 years and 300 days old when he made his Norway debut in the competition in October.
Odegaard turns 16 tomorrow and can pen a professional deal from then on.
