Yhe first signing of Osasuna for the 22-23 season is now official. This is Rubén Peña, a footballer whoHe is free after agreeing to terminate his contract with Villarreal, the team in which he has played for the last three seasons. Precisely three are the years for which he has signed with the Navarrese team: until June 2025. The termination clause is set at fifteen million euros.
Competition for Nacho Vidal
The right back was one of the priority positions to be reinforced by Osasuna during the current summer market. The sports management was looking for a player who would compete with Nacho Vidal in said demarcation since the Valencian has been the undisputed starter in recent campaigns. In this one, Jesús Areso’s injury “forced” Vidal to play practically every game. With almost two years ‘blank’, a loan is being sought so that the Cascantino defender obtains the minutes that have escaped him. And that is where Osasuna was looking for a footballer who would stand up to Vidal on the right wing. And it is here that Peña’s arrival in the discipline of the group directed by Jagoba Arrasate is framed.
