Manchester United have been interested in signing Takefusa Kubo for some time and the latest reports are interesting.
Last month, Mundo Deportivo revealed the Red Devils made a dizzying offer to sign the Japanese international from Real Sociedad.
As per today’s version of the Catalan outlet (news image provided below), Man Utd are one of the clubs who have ‘shown interest’ in signing the Japanese international.
However, the Spanish side have decided that neither Kubo, nor Zubimendi will be leaving in the January transfer window.
MD claim even Liverpool, Juve and Al-Nassr have inquired about luring the Asian star, who has a ‘bargain’ clause in his contract worth £51m (60 million euros).
The dilemma for Man Utd is that even if they opt to pay £51m to activate the clause, Kubo himself does not want to move.
It is stated that the player has decided to stay in the current month and even does not wish to leave Sociedad in the summer transfer window.
Last night, Antony scored his first goal for Man Utd after a wait of nine months and in all fairness, the Brazilian international should be replaced.
Kubo has directly contributed in 10 goals in the current campaign for the Txuri-Urdin, who will face French champions, Paris Saint-Germain, in the UEFA Champions League next month.
Have your say – Who should Man Utd sign to replace Antony on the right flank?
