Real Madrid wonder kid Takefusa Kubo is on the verge of cancelling his current loan deal with Villarreal to join another club where he can get more minutes, according to Villarreal coach Unai Emery. Kubo didn’t even make the squad list for Saturday’s match against Levante, so Emery was asked about the matter and delivered a very clear answer.

“I talked with Kubo a few days ago and asked him about the reports, so that he could tell me if he wants to stay or lave the club. He confirmed that he wants out because he’s not playing as much as he’d like. We never said we wanted him out, and now I’m only thinking about the players who are focused on Villarreal. He’s attitude has been good and we he’s been focused on Villarreal he’s helped our team. He still lacks some things but he has the potential to grow and with patience, experience and minutes he’ll do so. But he believes that in his current situation he needs more minutes,” said Emery.
