Real Madrid vs. Real Sociedad: The Threat of Takefusa Kubo Looms Large

Real Madrid is set to host Real Sociedad in a high-stakes match on Sunday, marking the fifth matchday of the 2023-24 La Liga season. Real Madrid, boasting a flawless record with four consecutive victories, aims to maintain their 100% record.

However, Real Sociedad, led by their talisman Takefusa Kubo, poses a significant threat. The 22-year-old has seamlessly stepped into the role previously held by David Silva following the latter’s retirement and has enjoyed a sensational start to the season.

Real Madrid is no stranger to Kubo, as the Japanese international spent three years within the club. Despite his tenure, he never featured in a competitive match for the first team.

In 2022, Real Sociedad secured Kubo’s permanent signing for a mere €6 million, with an intriguing clause that grants Real Madrid 50% of any capital gain from a future sale. Additionally, Real Madrid retains the option to re-sign him for a reported fee of €33 million, although Kubo’s release clause stands at €60 million.

The prospect of reacquiring Kubo for €33 million may seem like a bargain, but the key question lies in how effectively Real Madrid would utilize him. There is speculation that Real Madrid might consider re-signing him with the intention of promptly selling him for a profit—a scenario Real Sociedad would likely want to avoid at all costs.
