Real Madrid are ready to send Takefusa Kubo on-loan to Real Sociedad.
Real Madrid remain hopeful of Kubo developing into a first teamer for them and intend to place him at La Real for the new season.
Last term, Kubo spent six months with Getafe before switching to Real Mallorca.
Real Madrid must find a new club for Kubo as he is yet to qualify for a European passport.
La Real have opened talks with Madrid for the Japan international. They would prefer an outright deal, while Madrid are insisting on a loan arrangement.
