Arda Guler was the hero for Real Madrid earlier this week when Los Blancos secured a tight 1-0 win over Real Sociedad to edge closer to the title.

Indeed, the men in white were heavily rotated on the night with the UEFA Champions League semifinal in. Yet, one cannot deny that La Real put up a splendid fight at the Reale Arena.

One of the players who shone brightest for Imanol Alguacil’s men last night was former Real Madrid star, Takefusa Kubo. The 22-year-old winger started on the night producing one shot on target, three key passes and completing three successful dribbles in the process.

Sale on the cards

Kubo has impressed during his spell at Real Sociedad and has grown into one of the Basque side’s most reliable players. Several top clubs are interested in his signing, and his release clause stands at €60 million.

Liverpool are one of the European giants interested in his acquisition and are willing to shell out the aforementioned amount. This comes as massive news for Real Madrid for it indirectly brings a significant amount to their coffers, as revealed by Defensa Central.

Los Blancos retain 50% of Kubo’s rights and are thus entitled to €30 million should any club pay his release clause and sign him. With a massive summer up ahead, an inflow of such a sum would undoubtedly help the club’s finances.

Cut-throat competition 

A player of Kubo’s calibre is indeed worthy of playing at Real Madrid. His trickery down the flank makes him a difficult customer to deal with and an asset for Los Blancos’ counter-attacking football.

As it stands, however, Real Madrid are overstocked in the attacking midfield department with Jude Bellingham, Brahim Diaz and Arda Guler all fighting for one spot.

With Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick set to fight for the places in attack next season, there is clearly no space for the youngster’s incorporation.

Kubo’s missing out on a place at the club of his dreams can only be described as unfortunate, but his sale would open many doors for the club and is in the best interest of all parties involved.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
