Getafe want to sign Takefusa Kubo

The January transfer business of Getafe continues, even after Carles Alena’s arrival on loan. As the Azulones are now trying to bring Takefusa Kubo to the club. Kubo has struggled for several minutes at Villarreal this season, and negotiations with Real Madrid to free the striker from his difficult situation are ongoing. “We asked Real Madrid, and if they fix it, then he will come,” said Getafe president Angel Torres. “There are no problems, and it’s a matter of time. Both Real and Villarreal want to agree, but if the boy does not come, then we will go with what we have.” When they pressed on possible obstacles in this deal, Torres was clear that it was just a three-team process. “There are no obstacles from anyone,” he added. “There is a bureaucratic process involving three teams. You have to calm down. Let’s wait for a few days.”

Getafe’s season got worse on Tuesday with the elimination of the Copa del Rey, but the president doesn’t see that as a significant cause for concern. “Don’t worry, we are Getafe,” he explained. “This year has been very complicated and difficult. We gave nothing, but Cordoba were better than us. We congratulate them and turn our attention to LaLiga.”
