Takefusa Kubo, a former La Masia prospect now playing for Real Sociedad, is said to be a target for Barcelona. This season, the Japanese winger has excelled at Sociedad, which has piqued the interest of Xavi and the club.
Barcelona tracking Take Kubo
The winger’s tenure at Barcelona came to an end in an unusual manner, and he ended up to Real Madrid, who still own 50% of his rights. All of this suggests that bringing him to Camp Nou would be a difficult and unlikely transaction.
Barcelona would have to find €60 million to cover Kubo’s termination clause, with half of that sum going to Madrid as a result. Los Blancos receive favorable buyback preferences if they want him back, but they don’t appear to be interested just now. If Barcelona gets close to wanting him back, I’m sure Real will make things difficult for them.
