Real Madrid is allegedly competing with Barcelona for the 24-year-old Spanish international, who Real Sociedad values at €70 million.
According to Catalan newspaper El Nacional, Barcelona will compete with arch rival Real Madrid for the services of a Spanish international. Real Sociedad value the 24-year-old Spanish international at about €70 million, and Luis Enrique has encouraged him to join Barcelona.
He’s come a long way since making his Real Sociedad debut at the age of 18. Over the previous half-decade or so, the player has developed into one of La Liga’s greatest wide attackers, while also establishing himself as a key player for La Real.
The 24-year-old, who is now one of Real Sociedad’s captains, has had a good start to the 2021/22 season, scoring six goals and assisting one in eight La Liga games. Simultaneously, he is establishing himself as an increasingly prominent figure in Spain. Some of Europe’s greatest teams, notably Barcelona and Real Madrid, have taken note of his achievements.
Barcelona has long been interested in Oyarzabal and sought to sign him during the summer transfer window. The Blaugrana, on the other hand, are still interested in the Real Sociedad midfielder, as they try to reshape their team following the exits of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann.
Real Madrid has also been on Oyarzabal for some time and might make a bid for him shortly if Eden Hazard continues to struggle. With Marco Asensio and Gareth Bale both facing unclear futures at Real Madrid, bringing in the 24-year-old might be a step in the right way for the club, who are also interested in Riyad Mahrez.
Oyarzabal, on the other hand, will not be cheap, with Real Sociedad valuing him at €70 million. Meanwhile, Spain manager Luis Enrique has encouraged the Real Sociedad striker to pick Barcelona over Real Madrid, however it is uncertain if the Catalan giants can afford his €70 million value.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, may be able to raise the necessary cash to sign the Spanish international, despite their own financial difficulties. Overall, an intriguing duel appears to be brewing between the two most recognizable clubs in the world for Oyarzabal.
