Take Kubo: Real Madrid teenage star wanted by 29 clubs

Real Madrid know they have something special in teenage winger Takefusa Kubo who has TWENTY-NINE (29) club interested in him.

The most irritating of those for Madrid is Paris Saint-Germain, who according to AS are ‘insisting’ on Kubo.

The 19-year-old is currently on loan at Real Mallorca and will face his parent club Madrid on Wednesday night.

Kubo has made 27 appearances this season in La Liga, scoring three times and delivering three assists.

PSG won’t give up

Paris Saint-Germain tried to sign Kubo last year, but he rejected a €4m-a-season contract to join Real Madrid.

The Parisians’ sporting director Leonardo continues to pursue Kubo and has this month been trying to convince him.

Kubo’s response so far has been the same as it was last year – that he wants only Real Madrid.

Madrid will not sell Kubo under any circumstances and have shielded him with a €220m release clause.

Another loan move away from the Santiago Bernabéu next season is more realistic and clubs are lining up.

AS reports that ‘at least’ 29 clubs have relayed their interest to Real Madrid.

They include Ajax, Lazio, AC Milan, Celtic and more than ten Spanish sides, including Real Sociedad and Real Betis.

Madrid plan to hold talks with Kubo and reach a consensus on what his next move will be.

It seems unlikely that Kubo, as a non-EU player, will get a spot in the 2020-21 Madrid squad.

The priority is for Kubo to continue playing in Spain with a preference for a team in a European competition.

Kubo the brand

The young winger is what Madrid president Florentino Perez has always pursued – a good footballer with huge brand value.

Already a senior Japan international, Kubo attracts enormous interest from his homeland.

Eight of the ten most viewed La Liga matches this season have been for Real Mallorca games.

In fact, Mallorca against Villarreal with Kubo featuring surpassed even El Clásico in Japan.

Kubo was on Barcelona’s books until they violated FIFA’s international transfer policy and he became ineligible to play for them.

After returning to Japan with FC Tokyo, Kubo joined Barca’s arch-rivals Real Madrid, signing a five-year deal in 2019.
