Zubimendi’s season at Real Sociedad has not gone unnoticed by the big clubs in Europe, who are willing to pay his release clause
Roberto Olabe and Imanol Alguacil want to do everything possible to keep the team’s best players in the squad. A squad that will play the Champions League next season, which is the biggest incentive not to go out this summer. However, zubimendi has great suitors to leave the Real society. Suitors who are willing to pay their termination clause.
In fact, already last winter market Arsenal was willing to deposit its clause of 40 million euros at the LaLiga offices. But Zubimendi rejected the proposal to continue at Real Sociedad. Now the interest of gunners He has disappeared, but there are other big teams interested in signing him.
Zubimendi and his preferred destination to leave Real Sociedad
Right now, the team most interested in Zubimendi is FC Barcelona. Xavi Hernández has not bitten his tongue when talking about the txuri-urdin footballer, of whom he admits to being a great admirer. But at the moment the Barcelona group cannot guarantee that he can deal with an operation of such characteristics.
Also, it should be noted that Zubimendi would have another favorite destination to get transferred. A destination that is not being talked about at the moment, because the truth is that his position is very well covered. However, it is to be expected that next summer they will launch the signing of a new pivot. And the San Sebastian would fit perfectly.
Real Madrid will look for a replacement for Kroos in 2024
Currently, the white team has their position very well tied with players like Camavinga, Tchouameni or Kroos. But the German aims to retire next season, leaving his position on the pitch and the number ‘8’ vacant. A number that Zubimendi could inherit next season and that would make all parties involved very happy.
On the one hand, Real Sociedad would retain Zubimendi for one more season. The player would fulfill his dream of playing in the highest European competition with the club of his life and Real Madrid would get the signing of one of the best Spanish footballers today. Something that Florentino Pérez has always pursued, who has always sought a balance between national and international stars.
