Real Madrid and La Liga side Real Sociedad have reportedly reached an agreement for the transfer of exciting Japanese attacker Takefusa Kubo.

According to Marca, Los Blancos are only selling 50% of the rights to Kubo and will be able to bring him back any time the club wants over the next five years, similarly to what happened with Martin Odegaard.

Kubo will join Real Sociedad on a five year contract and insisting on leaving Real Madrid this summer as he can’t play for Carlo Ancelotti’s side due to the 3 non-EU spots in the team being occupied by Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Eder Militao.

The fee for 50% of Kubo’s rights has not been reported and if Real Sociedad decide to sell Kubo before the summer of 2027, Madrid will also get 50% of that transfer fee.

Real Sociedad have twice failed to sign Kubo and have been third time lucky.

Real Madrid reportedly believe a move to Real Sociedad will help the Japanese winger grow and it is believed he will realise his potential and return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
