Kubo is on international duty with Japan and preparing for the Olympics with his future still up in the air.
His stay at Madrid has been ruled out because he doesn’t hold a European passport and Madrid’s non-EU quota is already taken by Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo.
Kubo, 20, is set to spend another season out on loan. Since joining Los Blancos from FC Tokyo in the summer of 2019, Kubo had a successful loan spell at Mallorca. He spent the first half of last season on loan at Villarreal but was unable to earn regular playing time before moving to Getafe where he played the last six months.
Kubo has plenty of options to play in Spain and overseas. Real Madrid would be open to allow Kubo to strengthen at Real Sociedad, where he would get regular playing time.
