Oscar Cortes fee to trigger Rangers transfer revealed as Lens name the number they won't budge off

Rangers will have to pay Lens £4million if they want to land Oscar Cortes on a permanent deal from Lens.

The Ligue 1 side will not budge on the figure which is the same they paid Millonarios 12 months ago to take the 20-year-old winger to France from the Colombian side. He joined the Ibrox side in January and provided Philippe Clement's then title challengers with a jolt before a serious muscle injury in February put paid to his season.

Cortes has remained around the Ibrox set-up and was in attendance on Saturday for the Scottish Cup Final. Clement has promised a rebuild with Mohamed Diomande to turn his loan into a permanent £4.3m transfer. Abdallah Sima – valued by parent club Brighton at £8million – is another who supporters would love to see return to Glasgow.

And now Lens are ready to stand firm over the fee they expect to net from Cortes – according to the Rangers Review. The player himself as he updated fans on his comeback and his ultimate dream of playing for Real Madrid. He said: “I’m doing well now, after everything that has happened.

"There were obviously difficult times but I think that with the help of all the people I have around me they helped me a lot, and they have helped me to be calm in my head as well. I arrived and started to do things very well and well unfortunately the injury came and I had to stop for three months but I thank God I am already in the recovery process.

“Me and my agents are keeping tabs on the negotiations that are taking place. We will see what happens. I'm talking to my agents and also to Lens and Rangers. Let's see what happens. I am waiting. Since I started playing soccer, my dream has been to play for Real Madrid, it has always been my dream. My dream is to get to Real Madrid. With work and sacrifice I believe that it can be achieved at some point. They are my team.
