Real Valladolid sporting director Miguel Ángel Gómez talked to the press and denied the rumors suggesting that Real Madrid wonder kid Takefusa Kubo will play for them next season.

“Kubo is a quality player, he’s tremendous but belongs to Real Madrid. As of today there is nothing with the player,” said Gómez.

Reports from the Spanish press indicated that Real Madrid were thinking about sending Kubo on a loan deal after seeing that he’s ready to play consistent minutes in elite football. Castilla could be too small for him and Kubo needs quality minutes in order to develop as a player, so it would make sense to find a new club for him willing to give the Japanese wonder kid the role he needs.

However, with Valladolid potentially out of the picture, it now seems that Kubo will need to spend the season with Castilla, where he will be coached by Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez.
