The yellow team, which will play the Europa League next season, reached an agreement for the 19-year-old Japanese.
It became official: Villarreal and Real Madrid closed the agreement for the loan of Takefusa kubo for about 5 million euros. The 19-year-old Japanese winger will play next season for the yellow team, which pays 3 million for the operation and takes over the player’s entire record, valued at another 2 million.
The Kawasaki-born has been one of the great revelations of The league despite the fact that he could not avoid the relegation of Mallorca, a team with which he scored 4 goals and distributed 5 assists in his first 35 league games. However, the Japanese does not find a place yet in Madrid, which does not have extra-community places available, so he had to leave again.
In this sense, Villarreal prevailed in the race to close the operation to many other teams that were interested in the young Asian, such as Sevilla, who asked to include a purchase option that did not convince Madrid, Real Sociedad, Betis, Granada, Celta from Vigo, Osasuna or clubs of international stature such as Ajax.
The institution of Castellón also has a populated attack but opted for the qualities of Kubo for his return to the Europa League thanks to the new project of Unai Emery, a very demanding coach at a tactical level who can help the player mature and improve his defensive level conditions.
