After Son Heung-min, ‘Lee Kang-in’s best friend’… Saudi Arabia’s 232 billion offer ‘rejected’
He turned down an astronomical offer.
“Takefusa Kubo (22, Real Sociedad) has rejected a huge offer from Al-Hilal (Saudi Arabia),” Spanish media outlet As reported on Jan. 1 (KST). Al-Hilal reportedly offered 40 million euros ($575 million) a year in salary and a four-year deal worth 160 million euros ($232 million) 안전놀이터.
Kubo was at his best for Sociedad last season, racking up plenty of attacking points with his trademark dribbling and sharp left-footed shooting. In total, he made 44 appearances, scoring nine goals and providing nine assists. Thanks to Kubo’s performance, Sociedad finished fourth in the Spanish La Liga. They also qualified for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season.
His recent performances have sparked transfer rumors. At the end of the season, he was linked with a return to his hometown club Real Madrid. However, Kubo dismissed the rumors and expressed his love for Sociedad.
Al Hilal then approached him with ‘oil money’, having recently signed a string of high-profile European players such as Nabil Neves and Kalidou Koulibaly. However, Kubo did not give in to the ‘oil money’. According to the media, Kubo’s priority is his career, not money.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min also recently received an offer from a Saudi club. This summer, the “oil money” wave is sweeping Europe. Many stars, including Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante, have headed to Saudi Arabia. Son Heung-min was also on the radar. But like Kubo, he chose to stay in Europe. It’s clear that he’s putting his career first and not the money 토토사이트순위.
