Real Madrid attacking midfielder Oscar Rodriguez had a wonderful 2019-2020 season on loan at Leganes, and he’s ready for the next challenge in his career.
With Isco back in form, Marco Asensio set to return from injury, Takefusa Kubo looking like a future star, and Martin Odegaard already one of La Liga’s top attacking players, Real Madrid have plenty of current and potential stars at the No. 10 position. And that list doesn’t even include recent acquisition Reinier Jesus, whose upside is on par with Odegaard’s.
The above list also doesn’t include Oscar Rodriguez, who is Real Madrid’s hidden gem. Loanees like Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Reguilon, and Odegaard were tremendous in 2019-2020 and are among Europe’s best players at their positions, but Oscar also had an exceptional season at Leganes.
Oscar’s seven goals and two assists tell a significant part of the story, as he was the man responsible for the most goal contributions on the team. Many of Oscar’s goals were from brilliant shots outside the box or were important late goals, as he has done everything he can to keep Leganes afloat in La Liga.
His performances haven’t gone unnoticed by quality clubs around Europe. Per a report from Onda Cero, via Managing Madrid’s Matt Wiltse, there are 13 clubs who have interest in the 21-year-old attacking midfielder.
Real Madrid have so much talent at the position that they are willing to sell Oscar and could do so by including a buy-back clause in his deal. They have made similar moves in the past with striker Mariano Diaz and superstar defensive midfielder Casemiro, who broke out at FC Porto before rejoining Los Blancos.
Perhaps Oscar could have a similar path, and some great teams are in the mix. Sevilla, Lazio, Wolves, Real Sociedad, FC Schalke 04, and other clubs in La Liga and the Premier League are mentioned as interested parties.

Oscar could cost 20 million euros, and for many of these teams with Europa League or Champions League ambitions, he would be worth the cost. The man can score from nothing and is only getting better and better.
