OFFICIAL: Real Madrid Sign Takefusa Kubo "Japanese Messi" From FC Tokyo

Real Madrid have completed the signing of Takefusa Kubo, the 'Japanese Messi', from FC Tokyo, MySportDab reports.

The 18-year-old is expected to sign a five-year contract deal for an undisclosed fee and and will straight to the B team.

"A technically gifted and hugely talented attacking midfielder, hepossesses wonderful vision, quick feet and has an eye for goal," the club said.

Kubo, who made his Japan debut against El Salvador earlier this month, impressed for table-topping J League side FC Tokyo.

He is currently in Brazil with the rest of the Japan squad preparing for the Copa America, where they are competing as a guest team, which begins later on Friday.

Kubo's arrival in Madrid will not be his first taste of Spanish football, having joined Barcelona's famed La Masia youth academy aged nine.

Nicknamed the 'Japanese Messi', Kubo was earmarked for a future at the Nou Camp but returned to Japan after Barcelona were found guilty of youth transfer breaches and handed a 14-month transfer ban by FIFA.


However, Kubo joins the likes of Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard, Serbian striker Luka Jovic and French defender Ferland Mendy in making moves to the Santiago Bernabeu in recent days.
