Real Madrid is facing an injury crisis. They lack depth on all 3 lines. Accordingly, it will not be surprising if the White Vultures spend heavily in the upcoming January transfer period.
The attack is where Real will prioritize strengthening. They are heavily linked with Athletic Bilbao’s Nico Williams. However, as reported by Defensa Central, President Florentino Perez prefers Takefusa Kubo.
Kubo used to be a Real player, but could not make it into the first team at Santiago Bernabeu. He had to spend time on loan at several clubs. The Japanese international eventually joined Real Sociedad in the summer of 2022 and has improved immensely since then. He is currently one of the best players in La Liga.
There are sources saying that the release clause in Kubo’s contract with Real Sociedad is 60 million euros. But Real can bring him back to the Bernabeu for a transfer fee of about 30 million euros.
It can be seen that Real Madrid is still open to the idea of bringing back former players over the years. Just last summer, they signed Fran Garcia.
