Man Utd seeks to offer ‘seven times his wages’ to replace Antony after signing new deal

Kubo has emerged as a potential target for United, as they aim to improve their forward options in the summer. United were reportedly willing to offer Kubo seven times his current wage to replace Antony, who has failed to impress since moving to Old Trafford.

Despite this, Kubo has extended his contract at Real Sociedad until the summer of 2029, indicating his happiness to stay in Spain. The exact value of the release clause in his new deal is not known, but his old release clause was reportedly worth around £52 million.

Kubo, who has contributed six goals and four assists in all competitions this season, has been admired by United for some time. However, it remains to be seen if United will succeed in bringing Kubo to Old Trafford if they decide to make an official bid in the summer.

Kubo has praised Real Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil for bringing out the best in him since joining the club in 2022. It seems clear that Kubo will need convincing to leave Real Sociedad, where he has become one of the best young forwards in Spain under the guidance of Alguacil.
