Japan international Takefusa Kubo has committed his future to Real Sociedad amid links with a series of potential suitors.
The 22-year-old winger, who has been touted as a potential target for Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Saudi outfit Al Hilal, has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the Reale Arena until the end of the 2028-29 season.
A statement on the LaLiga club’s official website read: “Real Sociedad and Takefusa Kubo have reached an agreement to extend their partnership until the end of the 28-29 season.

“The Japanese, accompanied by the president Jokin Aperribay, signed his new contract, fulfilling both parties’ desire to continue growing together. Take stays at home.”
Kubo joined Real in July 2022 after three years on the books at Real Madrid, who reportedly have a 50 per cent sell-on clause, without making a competitive appearance and loan spells with Real Mallorca twice, Villarreal and Getafe.
He has since made 71 appearances and scored 15 goals and will hope to be involved in Wednesday night’s Champions League last 16 trip to Paris St Germain.
