PSG desperate to sign Real Madrid’s Takefusa Kubo. Leonardo, sports Director, has focused his attention this month on landing the Japanese star.
Takefusa Kubo (19 years old) looks like being exactly what Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez has always wanted – a footballer who is as good on the pitch as he is irresistible to major brands from around the world.
According to sources consulted by AS, PSG are determined to sign him. Just this month, Leonardo, sports director at the French club, has focused his attentions on the move.
However, he’s met a brick wall. Two brick walls in fact. The player rejected outright the offer of four million euros after tax a year to move to Paris
While Real Madrid have patiently explained they won’t sell him under any conditions. Of course he has a buy-out clause, but it’s set at an eye-watering 250 million euros.
It’s not just PSG. There are at least 29 clubs taking a keen interest in Kubo playing for them: Ajax, Lazio, Milan, Celtic.. and more than 10 teams in Spain alone, among them Real Sociedad and Betis.
