It is a constant that has been repeated in recent years, but in the end, to the relief of the followers of Real Sociedad, it never bears fruit. ‘TeamTalk’, British digital medium, once again emphasizes Manchester City’s interest in Mikel Oyarzabal and in the admiration he feels Pep Guardiola by the canterano de la Real. He goes further and mentions that the citizen club has contacted the entity txuri urdin on several occasions to ask about the situation of the left-handed attacker, but in Anoeta they always refer him to his contract until 2024 and his clause of 75 million euros .
During the last two football markets, some English media have pointed out that City’s intention to go after the captain of the Real, although in the end no maneuver in that sense has transpired. It seems clear, in any case, that the qualities of the Eibar convince the coach, Pep Guardiola, and the sports director, the Guipuzcoan and former realist Txiki Begiristain.
Guardiola, according to this medium, he wanted to sign Oyarzabal as a substitute for Leroy Sané when he left for Bayern Munich in the summer of 2020. Now he would like to recruit him in the 2022 summer market in order to strengthen his squad for the 2022/23 campaign. It is foreseeable that by that time, the Txuri Urdin from Eibar has already signed another contract with the Real, with a more extensive link and a higher termination clause. Alexander Isak, after whose renewal a few months ago, it accepted a release clause of 90 million euros.
PSG and Bayern, also attentive
According to ‘TeamTalk’, other European greats such as Paris Saint Germain or Bayern Munich are also interested in Oyarzabal. Whenever he has been asked about this, the realist youth squad has expressed himself in similar terms: “It is the usual, in the end we already know how this world of football works. There are many times that many things come out, I am calm, now I myself have my head only here, “he said in MD just three months ago.
