El Gol Digital has recently reported that Real Madrid are locked in a three-way battle to land Real Sociedad winger Mikel Oyarzabal this summer. It is understood that Los Blancos will have to compete with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign the Spanish wide player in this off-season (via El Gol Digital).
Oyarzabal’s Decent Run Of Form In Spanish Football This Season
The 24-year-old is enjoying an impressive season at the Anoeta Stadium as he has been responsible for putting in a series of productive displays for Sociedad out on the wide areas. Oyarzabal has featured in 40 matches for the Spanish club this term, finding the back of the net on 13 occasions and providing nine assists across various competitions.
The Eibar-born talent has caught the eye by averaging 1.9 shots, 1.5 key passes and 0.7 dribbles per game in La Liga this season. He has also been relatively tidy when distributing the ball in the opposition half after making 76.7% of his attempted passes in the Spanish top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Oyarzabal has begun to take strides towards improving himself but still has a long way to go before he can taste success at the highest level. Hence, joining Los Blancos could be a tempting move for the Spaniard as it will give him a chance to shine for one of the most prestigious footballing institutions in European football.
What Will Oyarzabal Add To Zinedine Zidane’s Team?
Oyarzabal is a quick and agile winger who can make some clever runs with the ball out on the wide areas. He can get into some promising positions in the final third and possesses the vision to create plays for others around him. The Spanish sensation has shown this season that he can score or create goals regularly from the flanks which makes him a decent option for Real Madrid to consider this summer.
Oyarzabal will add some goals and creativity to Zinedine Zidane’s frontline. He could serve as a perfect, long-term replacement for the injury-prone Eden Hazard, who has spent most of his Madrid career on the treatment table. At 24, the Spaniard is yet to enter his prime and could flourish playing under a successful manager like Zidane at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the coming seasons.
All in all, Oyarzabal has the potential to become a world-class player in his position someday and would also add a lot of long-term value to Real Madrid if they can find a way to get a deal done for him during the summer transfer period.
