The new football promise from Colombia has a bright future as the France team Lens, has confirmed the contract with the midfielder. After a good semester, the player has won recently the Colombian Championship with Millonarios and has been invited to the Main Team of his country.

The Journey Begins

In a whirlwind year, Óscar Cortés is on the brink of making his mark in European football. This isn’t just about his journey to Spain to join the Colombian National Team’s training camp for friendly matches against Iraq (June 16) and Germany (June 20). The Millonarios winger is reportedly set to fulfill his dream of playing in Europe, with rumors linking him to Ligue 1 appearing to be true.

Sealing the Deal

According to sports journalist Pipe Sierra, the deal is done: “Óscar Cortés (19) is a new player for Lens. Everything is settled, agreed, and signed with Millonarios and the winger; he leaves for 4.5M€. The ‘Ambassador’ will retain a 20-30%.” It’s only a matter of days before the French club makes it official: he will sign a contract until June 2028.

A Promising Future

If these reports are accurate, Millonarios will receive a substantial income for a player who only burst onto the scene in February, following his participation in the South American U-20 Championship with the Colombian National Team. In just a few months, he has become indispensable in Millonarios’ attack and was recently the top scorer in the World Cup in Argentina. It’s all happening fast, and it’s all good news if the clubs confirm the announcements.
