Real Madrid confirmed on Wednesday that Japanese international forward Takefusa Kubo will be on loan to Mallorca for a second time.
It will be the third consecutive season Real Madrid has loaned out the youngster and it will be his second spell with Mallorca where he made 36 appearances and scored four goals in the 2019-2020 campaign, although he could not save the club from relegation to the second division.
“Real Madrid and RCD Mallorca have agreed to the loan of the player, Takefusa Kubo for this season until June 30, 2022,” confirmed the Real Madrid website, according to Xinhua.
Meanwhile, Mallorca posted on social media that “The second time…could be even better. Welcome back Take,” said the club, which returned to LaLiga at the end of last season.
The forward, who played for Japan in the recent Olympic Games, spent the first half of last season with Villarreal but joined Getafe in the January transfer window after finding first-team chances limited.
One of Kubo’s problems with Real Madrid is that he doesn’t have a European Union passport, making it hard to fit into a squad, which includes the Brazilians, Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr and Eder Militao.
He is the second player to exit Real Madrid in 24 hours, following defender Victor Chust, who joined Cadiz for the forthcoming campaign on Tuesday.
Elsewhere reigning LaLiga champions, Atletico Madrid confirmed that central defender Stefan Savic has signed a new contract until the end of June 2024, while Real Sociedad have loaned defender Kevin Rodrigues and forward Martin Merkquelanz to recently promoted Rayo Vallecano.
