Real Sociedad’s Kubo Takefusa (22) has refused to go to Saudi Arabia. He wants to shake off big offers and stay with the team.
Spanish media outlet Lelebo reported on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time) that “Kubo rejected Saudi Arabia’s offer to transfer Al Nasr. He rejected the offer of 40 million euros (about 58.2 billion won) in annual salary.”라바카지노주소
Recently, rumors of Kubo’s transfer surfaced. Lelebo mentioned that Kubo is attracting Saudi Arabia’s attention. The media reported, “Cristiano Ronaldo’s team Al Nasr is trying to bring in a rising star from Europe.” Reporter Matteo Moreto said, “Al Nasr is interested in Kubo. He is one of the most interesting players in La Liga. He has a release clause of 60 million euros.”
“But Kubo hopes to stay in Europe. It seems unlikely that he will leave Real Sociedad before the summer,” he added. “Real Madrid also has to pay 50 percent of Kubo’s sale.”
In the end, Kubo is expected to stay with the team, shaking off a huge Saudi Arabian offer. There is still a possibility of transferring to Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in La Liga.
A scout for Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid reportedly headed to Qatar to watch Kubo’s match. This is to see how Kubo’s performance in the Japanese national team continues.
Kubo made his name while growing up in the Barcelona youth team from 2011 to 2015. In 2016, he made his J-League debut (15 years, 5 months, 1 day) and became the youngest player to score (15 years, 10 months) with FC Tokyo.
He joined Real Madrid in the 2019-20 season. However, there was no room for him to play. He has been on loan with several teams including Mallorca, Villarreal, and Getafe in order to get a chance to play. After deciding to completely transfer to Real Sociedad in the 2022-23 season, he has been playing a key role in the team through his outstanding performances.
He has had six goals and four assists in a total of 25 games this season. He has had six goals and three assists in 18 La Liga games, and has a significant portion of his team that he has played in 16 games as a starter.
Kubo’s potential and growth potential are highly regarded. In fact, it boasts the highest ransom among Asian players. The statistical media “Transfermarkt” updated the ransom of Asian players in December last year. Kubo’s transfer fee increased from 30 million euros to 60 million euros, overtaking Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Lee Kang-in as the No. 1 Asian player.
He highly values Kubo’s potential in the Spanish stage. This is why Saudi Arabia wanted to bring him in. However, he wants to continue his challenge in Europe, not in Saudi Arabia. His contract ends in June 2027.
