Take Kubo & Brahim Diaz close to Real Madrid loan exits

Real Madrid are close to loaning out young talents Takefusa Kubo and Brahim Diaz.

Japanese wonderkid Kubo, 19, has been linked with most clubs in La Liga and several European sides.

But following reports that Osasuna, Betis and Granada led the race, he is now reportedly heading to Villarreal.

Marcos Benito of El Chiringuito TV says only a few details remain before Kubo can join Villarreal on loan for the 2020-21 season.

Bundesliga kings Bayern Munich also wanted him and offered an €8m loan fee plus his salary (€10m total).

However, Kubo wants to remain in Spain for experience before joining Madrid’s first team in future.

Brahim to Betis

21-year-old winger Brahim Diaz is also in the Bernabéu exit lounge after struggling for game time.

Madrid paid €17m to recruit Diaz from Manchester City in 2018, but competition for places has limited him to five league starts.

And according to El Español, following up on recent reports, an agreement for Brahim to join Real Betis is close.

At Betis, Brahim will reunite with Manuel Pellegrini, who knows the youngster from his days at Malaga and Manchester City.

Pellegrini’s presence is the reason Brahim is poised to join the Andalusian club after interest from Spain and Europe.
