As the head of education in Barcelona said, Kubo was a little too greedy with Barça when he returned from Japan.
A choice to make between Real and Barça
Between training with Barcelona and his arrival in Madrid was Tokyo. In post-training first, then the discovery of the professional world in the J-League. But last summer, Kubo had a choice to make between the two giants in the League …
In talks with Real, where Florentino Perez softened his eyes for several years, Kubo also gave his chance to Barça, but the Japanese’s financial demands surprised the Catalan formation.
Back to Madrid next summer?
At the microphone of Radio Catalunya to talk about Gustavo Maia, who will soon come to Barça for 4.5 million euros from Sao Paulo, Barcelona education director Xavier Vilajoana said how the negotiations with Kubo failed.
“He asked for much more than the 4.5 million euros spent on Maia. Same thing over the duration of the contract or salary”said Vilajoana, quickly taken over by Real, where Kubo should return next summer after his loan – successfully – in Mallorca.
