Real Madrid signs Japanese teen star Kubo
Real Madrid has signed promising Japanese teenager Kubo Takefusa, who will join its reserve team.
Madrid described the 18-year-old attacking midfielder as "one of the most promising youngsters in world football," adding that "he possesses wonderful vision, quick feet and has an eye for goal."
The official announcement was made on June 15 by Kubo's former team, the J-League's FC Tokyo. He has agreed to a five-year contract, and his annual pay is thought to be more than 200 million yen.
Madrid says Kubo will initially play for its reserve team in Spain's third division.
Kubo is playing for Japan's national squad, having made his international debut on June 9 in a match against El Salvador.
Kubo spent time at FC Barcelona's youth training academy but was forced to leave in 2015 at the age of 13 when the Catalan club was found guilty of violating youth transfer rules. Barcelona was reportedly interested in bringing him back as well.
Madrid was founded in 1902. It has won the Spanish La Liga 33 times, and the European Champions League 13 times.
