Oscar Cortes has confirmed his representatives are locked in talks with Rangers.

The Colombian starlet, 20, caught the eye at Ibrox after arriving from Lens in January but his season was cut short by a serious muscle injury just seven games into his loan. Gers have an option to purchase the talented attacker this summer but it's understood they are keen to reduce the fee due to Cortes' limited appearances.

In an interview with Colombian sports journalist Pipe Sierra, Cortes opened up on his future and his injury rehabilitation. Translated by the Rangers Review, Cortes said: "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.

"[Regarding my injury] 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."

While an extended stay in Glasgow could be in the pipeline this summer, ambitious Cortes revealed his ultimate goal is to play for his beloved Real Madrid. He added: "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."
