Transfer: Real Madrid Announce Signing Of Japanese Takefusa Kubo

Published

 

Three times consecutive Champions League winner, Real Madrid, on Friday confirmed the signing of Japanese teenager Takefusa Kubo.

The 18-year-old joined Madrid from FC Tokyo and will play for Madrid’s B team, Castilla, next season.

“Takefusa Kubo will join Castilla next season,”.

“He is one of the most promising young players in world football, an attacking midfielder with excellent technique and great vision for the game.”

Kubo, who has been dubbed the “Japanese Messi”, made his full international debut against El Salvador earlier this month and was also linked with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Premier League champion Manchester City.

Kubo earned his nickname after joining Barca’s youth academy aged 10 but returned to Japan in 2015 as a result of FIFA sanctions handed to the club for breaching rules on signing under-age players.
