Real Madrid talent Takefusa Kubo will leave the club on another loan deal this summer, with clubs like Real Sociedad and Mallorca as the favorites to secure his signing. Kubo would rather play for Mallorca again after he spent the 2018-2019 season with them, according to a report published on MARCA.

Kubo wants to be an undisputed starter in La Liga next season, something he hasn’t achieved so far even though he tried with Villarreal and Getafe last year. The attacker showcased his talent in the Olympic Games and it seems that both Mallorca and Real Sociedad would be willing to give him such a role as long as he also earns it on the field.

The attacker will likely miss the first games of the 2021-2022 season given that he just finished the football tournament of the Olympic Games. He will need to get some rest and then complete a individual pre-season stage to get in proper condition, so it might not be easy for him to secure his role if other players in Mallorca or Real Sociedad establish themselves as starters or crucial players before Kubo is 100% ready to play and make an impact.
