Arsenal and Newcastle ready to pay €60 million release clause of 22-year old winger

Real Madrid pose a threat to Arsenal and Newcastle United, who are prepared to pay Takefusa Kubo’s €60 million release clause.

Premier League teams Arsenal and Newcastle United are willing to spend €60 million for Takefusa Kubo, according to Fichajes.

A number of English teams are vying for the 22-year-old La Liga winger but they will have to contend with Real Madrid’s formidable challenge.

Having contributed four assists and six goals to Real Sociedad’s La Liga campaign this year, Kubo has been enjoying an incredible season.

The Japanese international is already being pursued by a few well-known teams, and it is inevitable that he will draw a lot of interest in his services.

Newcastle United, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester City are among the teams interested in signing the talented young winger. The Gunners and the Magpies are willing to pay the €60 million release clause in the winger’s contract in the summer.

If any club triggers that clause, Real Sociedad won’t get in the way of him, and some English teams may view this as a kind of chance.

Kubo may consider waiting on teams like Arsenal and Newcastle as he is aware that his future may lay elsewhere, perhaps outside of La Liga. If Liverpool lose Mohamed Salah, they may also join the race.

As things stand, the 22-year-old winger, finds the Gunners considerably more appealing than a team like Newcastle, who have struggled this season.

The Premier League teams are all eager to recruit Kubo, but Real Madrid, the dominant team in La Liga, will pose a serious challenge to teams like Arsenal, Man United and Newcastle. The young winger is a former Madrid player, who have favourable clauses in the contract.

They can sign Kubo for half of his €60 million release clause, for example, and there are rumours that they have some sell-on clauses in place as well.

Therefore, Real Madrid may decide to re-sign the 22-year-old La Liga winger and then sell him for a profit if they decide to give other teams’ interest some real consideration.
