Real Madrid have a habit when parting ways with talented youngsters of negotiating a buyback clause or a deal to retain a 50% sell-on clause, so they still have an opportunity to bring them back in the future if they want to. This strategy was on display this summer when the club transferred the likes of Sergio Arribas and Carlos Dotor.

It also helped Real Madrid to bring Fran Garcia back to the club this summer for just a €5 million transfer fee from Rayo Vallecano. And could it be on full display in the future once again?

One talented youngster many Real Madrid fans may have forgotten about is Japanese international, Takefusa Kubo. He was signed in 2019 and went out on several loan spells before leaving permanently for Real Sociedad. However, the 22-year-old could find his way back to Santiago Bernabeu in the future.

As reported by SPORT, Real Madrid have been monitoring Kubo since they transferred him to Real Sociedad in the summer of 2022. There is believed to be a €60 million release clause in his contract and Los Blancos would have to pay half of that. It is an option that is not ruled out if the Japanese international maintains his upward trajectory.

After signing Kubo in the summer of 2019, the Japanese international never found his place in the squad and was constantly sent out on loan. He never made a competitive appearance for Los Blancos before leaving.

However, Real Madrid retained a 50% sell-on clause. And that could come into play in the near future.

Kubo is off to a lightning-fast start for Real Sociedad this season. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has registered 3 goals and an assist in 4 appearances till now.

Thus, it is easy to see why Real Madrid might be keeping an eye on Kubo. Do not rule out a return in the future.
