Report: Man Utd want to sign £52m La Liga star to sort out key position, talks underway.



Manchester United reportedly bid £52 million to acquire La Liga star to resolve crucial position; negotiations have begun.Manchester United, per Mundo Deportivo Gipuzkoa (via SportWitness), has reportedly indicated interest in acquiring Real Sociedad attacker Takefusa Kubo for the upcoming summer.

Sociedad is hosting the 22-year-old for the second time since his transfer from Real Madrid. He has been in outstanding form with six goals and four assists, and according to Mundo Deportivo, Manchester United representatives have expressed interest in acquiring him.


United are considering a deal for him this summer and are willing to pay six to seven times his current contract, according to the Spanish outlet. A swap deal involving Antony is improbable, and Sociedad will demand payment of his release clause of £52 million in exchange for a transfer.Great talent

Kubo is considered to be among the most promising youth wingers in the Spanish Premier League. He has been instrumental in the positive development of Sociedad over the past eighteen months. The Japanese superstar has established himself as the face of the right flank with multiple goal contributions.


Furthermore, the former Real Madrid youth has distinguished himself with his dexterity in agility and his capacity to break through defenses at speed. Additionally, he enjoys duels and possesses the potential to develop into a player of international caliber in the future seasons.


It is not remarkable that United appear to be interested in signing him, considering their lackluster performance on the right wing. Antony, Jadon Sancho, Facundo Pellistri, and Amad Diallo are their current candidates, but none have impressed.Recent weeks have also seen Marcus Rashford experiment with the right wing position, but the Englishman has struggled to provide the necessary creativity. They may find Kubo to be the answer to their problems if they are willing to comply with Sociedad’s requirements.


Next summer, Kubo’s arrival may coincide with a number of departures. Sancho, who has fallen out of favor under manager Erik ten Hag, may be leaving the club, while either Pellistri or Amad may be loaned out for a year.
