Real Sociedad is looking for a guaranteed substitute to fill the void left by the unexpected retirement of David Silva, who was forced to hang up his boots due to a serious injury suffered last week, which would prevent him from playing for the entire year of the contract that he stayed in Anoeta. Faced with this situation, the Basque club has put its hands to work and has identified Manuel Lanzini as one of the best candidates to fill the place of the Canarian player.
Lanzini, who recently completed his contract with West Ham United, is free to sign with any club of his choice. Although it had been rumored in recent weeks that his destination could be at River Plate, Real Sociedad’s interest could change his plans, since it would offer him the opportunity to continue in Europe, in another of the big leagues, and also play the name Champions League.
The 30-year-old Argentinian midfielder has been a leading figure in the Premier League, showing his technical quality and ability to generate scoring chances. His creativity, game vision and versatility on the pitch will customize him into a suitable fit to reinforce Real Sociedad’s midfield and fill the void left by Silva’s departure.
They need your experience and quality
The interest of the Basque club lies not only in Lanzini’s football quality, but also in his experience in competitive leagues, which would allow him to quickly adapt to La Liga’s style of play. In addition, the possibility of playing in the Champions League represents a great attraction for both the player and the team, since he would provide an opportunity to compete at the highest European level.
