Real Madrid loaned Kubo to Getafe

Football News

After his unhappy loan spell at Villarreal was cut short, Takefusa Kubo saw his wish fulfilled, with Real Madrid terminating the arrangement and sending Getafe to Japan internationally.

The highly-rated 19-year-old left Santiago Bernabeu for the first time ahead of the 2020-21 campaign. The idea was that he would spend the whole season at El Madrigal.

Following a high-profile move to Europe, Kubo had previously been allowed to link up with Real Mallorca, with his parent club eager to get him regular game time.

The change turned out to be a good one, as 36 appearances were made in all competitions, but at Villarreal, the going proved to be much tougher.

He shared a desire to start afresh elsewhere, with Kubo struggling to pin down a starting berth.

“Reporters of his discussions with the young man told Villarreal boss Unai Emery: “I asked Kubo if he wanted to stay or leave and he told me that he was looking for a way out.

“He helped us and he must continue to grow as a player, but he told me he would like to leave to find more minutes elsewhere and that’s why he wasn’t in the matchday squad today.”

With club president Angel Torres telling Onda Cero, Getafe was quick to make their interest known: “Kubo wants to come to Getafe. Yes, Carles Alena may be more encouraging, but we’re not going to go nuts.
