Despite regularly training with the senior squad, it is the first time Odegaard has been named in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad since Los Blancos fended off global interest to sign the midfielder.
Since his move to the Bernabeu, Odegaard has been playing with the club’s Castilla side in the third tier of Spanish football.
Having initially struggled to settle, Odegaard was axed by boss Zinedine Zidane earlier this month for reportedly refusing to train with the youth squad.
