Who is the top player of La Real to watch in the 2021-22 season?

There are many bright faces in the squad of Real Sociedad over the years. But betimate takes a look at the two following young players who are worth watching in the 2021-22 La Liga.  

Ander Barrenetxea

Real Sociedad has produced several outstanding players over the years in La Liga. They have since won a slew of awards, providing Sociedad with motivation to keep up the good job. Ander Barrenetxea, at 19 years old, is turning out to be a valuable addition to the Sociedad academy of gifted youth.

Ander Barrenetxea

In the footsteps of current club favorite Mikel Oyarzabal, the youthful striker aspires to be as important as the Spanish national team star. Last season, Barrenetxea appeared in 31 La Liga games for Sociedad, making 13 starts and 18 substitute appearances.

In the 2020-21 La Liga season, the Spaniard also scored three goals and added an assist, one of which came against FC Barcelona in March. We anticipate him playing with greater confidence in the coming season, providing Sociedad with the creative outlet they sorely lack. In the 2021-22 season, Ander Barrenetxea scored in their matchday 3 against Levante. He brought the only winning goal to the club with three points at the standing table.

Mikel Oyarzabal

This 24-year-old player is currently the goal machine of La Real in the first stage of the 2021-22 La Liga. Within their first five La Liga games, including one zero-goal draw, he scored in three matches with a total of four goals. 

Mikel Oyarzabal has also had a long time sticking with the club (since 2015) and produced 65 goals in seven seasons of La Liga. In October 2020, Mikel was awarded the La Liga Player of the Month. This vice-captain of Real Sociedad has proven to Imanol Alguacil that he deserves this position and is very promising to help the club winning their third La Liga title after a very long period of time.

Mikel Oyarzabal

This left-winger is also the player with the most market value in the squad of Real Sociedad, with €70m, almost double that of the second-highest valuable player, Mikel Merino with €40m.
