Takefusa Kubo will be playing at Spanish club Villarreal next season as latest reports have it that Real Madrid have agreed a new loan deal for the wonderkid to play for the Yellow Marines.
The 19-year-old Japanese international has been tipped to become a soccer great in the near future as he impressed in his first full season while on loan at Mallorca.
Spanish outlet AS is reporting that Villarreal beat teams like Granada, Osasuna and Celta Vigo to snap up the player who scored four goals and made five assists for Mallorca which have now been relegated to the Segunda Division.
Real Madrid are desperate in bringing the exciting former Barcelona player to their first team, but they will need to wait another year before he can play in the La Liga.
Regulations stipulate that Spanish sides are only allowed to include three non-EU players and with Vinicius Junior not expected to acquire an EU passport until next season, Kubo must spend another campaign away from the Bernabeu.
To understand how crucial the player is to Real Madrid, the club refused to include a buy-option in their deal with Villarreal who are directly responsible for the player’s wages.
And this is coming barely two weeks that former Arsenal manager Unai Emery was officially announced as the new manager of the club.
The Yellow Submarines in an official statement confirmed that former boss Javi Calleja was relieved of his duties despite having an impressive 2019-20 season.
Villarreal finished in an impressive fifth position at the end of the campaign, booking their place in next season's Europa League.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Paul Dybala has become a summer target for Real Madrid and reports claim £90million plus a player will be used to lure away the Juventus star.
Los Blancos were recently dumped out of the Champions League by Man City and club president Florentino Perez believes Dybala is key to bringing glory days back to Madrid.
It is understood the deal would involve either Toni Kroo or Isco for the Argentine superstar to leave the Bianconeri.
