Real Madrid are burning the midnight oil to facilitate departures from their camp. The reigning Spanish and European champions are looking to clear out players who do not have a place on the roster at the earliest possible. And Takefusa Kubo is now headed for the exit doors.

Los Blancos signed Kubo, the ‘Japanese Messi’, on a free transfer in 2019. Since his arrival, the youngster has been on a loan spree. He spent two seasons at RCD Mallorca and a term each at Getafe and Villareal in the last four years. He now seems set to leave the club permanently.

According to Diario AS, Real Sociedad have won the race to sign Kubo on a permanent deal. Jose Luis Sanchez of La Sexta TV reports that the fee involved is €6 million and the contract will see him at the Basque club until 2027.

Real Madrid will retain 50% of the player’s rights and would hence have an equal share of any future transfer. Given that La Real plan on placing a €60 million release clause, that figure could go as high as €30 million.

Last season, the Japanese international participated in 28 league games for Mallorca and scored just one goal. He averaged just over a key pass per game and created three big chances.

With Carlo Ancelotti having the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vasquez and Eden Hazard at his disposal, Kubo would undoubtedly stand as a surplus. Furthermore, the non-EU spots in the squad are also occupied, leaving little room for the Japanese ace.

The club’s decision to part ways with the 21-year-old is understandable but a pity, given the high ceiling he was touted to have.
