Takefusa Kubo has left Real Madrid permanently.
The Japanese youngster has spent the last season on loan at Mallorca and has made 31 games in all competition.
After arriving in 2019, he never actually played for the first-team and spent time on loan with Villarreal, Getafe and Mallorca.
After enjoying four successive loan spells, Kubo’s time at Bernabeu comes to an end as he joins Real Sociedad on a four-year deal.
But Real Madrid have managed to retain 50% of the rights for the 21-year-old and can buy him in the future.

“Take Kubo arrived late this afternoon in Donostia to complete his move to Real Sociedad,” Sociedad explained on the club’s official website.
“The Japanese footballer landed at Hondarribia airport around 8.30pm, where director of football Roberto Olabe and scouting director Erik Bretos awaited him.
“The Japanese footballer will undergo a medical tomorrow at the Gipuzkoa Polyclinic and once completed, will sign his contract with Real and be officially presented as a new Txuri Urdin player.”
