Real Madrid signed Takefusa Kubo as a free agent in the summer 2019 transfer window, and Madridistas were excited to see how the former Barcelona academy player would develop with the Merengue club. Immediately, Real sent him on loan in LaLiga to Mallorca, and though he did not begin the...
Recent reports have suggested that Real Madrid are hopeful that Vinicius will soon be receiving his Spanish citizenship. By receiving citizenship, Vinicius would free up one of the three non-EU spots in the squad that he currently occupies along with Eder Militao and Rodrygo. If the spot is to be freed up by this summer, there is one player that the staff at Real Madrid are eager to give it to, Takefusa Kubo.
Real Madrid has a history of signing and attracting promising young talents from around the world and developing them into some of the best football players who either make it at Real, which is a rare occurrence, or are sold to other clubs in Europe’s top-flight where they continue to demonstrate their competence and quality of education.
When Real Madrid signed Takefusa Kubo in the summer of 2019, it was a transfer that generated a ton of noise. This is because he was one of the world’s most highly sought-after prospects at that time, but it was mainly due to his roots as a La Masia graduate in his early career that caused a majority of the buzz.
Real Madrid’s signing of Takefusa Kubo from FC Tokyo in 2019 was part of a bigger picture as they signed some of the brightest young talents around the world. It was during that time that they also signed Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes. However and as expected, things went differently for all the youngsters that joined Los Blancos. For some, the stars aligned perfectly but for others like Kubo, some struggles were there to be seen.
Real Madrid have sent out a handful of promising players on loan for the 2021-2022 season, but no two players are in a more interesting situation than Takefusa Kubo and Reinier Jesus. We are talking about two of the most promising attacking midfield prospects in the entire world, on the books of the most-followed club on the planet. But we are also talking about two players who have not been able to put together consistent production on the pitch in the last year.
Real Madrid need to find an ideal loan partner for young attacker Takefusa Kubo, who has a world of potential and recently showed his ability on a big stage at the Olympics. It has been an uneven first two seasons on Real’s books for the Japanese international, as Kubo’s encouraging first loan to Mallorca was followed up by a lost 2020-2021 season with Villarreal and Getafe.
Real Madrid prospect Takefusa Kubo did not have an eventful 2020-2021 season despite receiving a big loan opportunity with Villarreal and a subsequent winter loan to Getafe after that first transfer did not work out. But Kubo has reemerged on the radar with a massive Olympics, having fulfilled his goal...
Takefusa Kubo has been instrumental in Japan's push for an Olympic medal, and now the promising playmaker is ready to give Spanish football a reminder of why he already has had spells at the country's biggest clubs. The 20-year-old will lead the tournament hosts into their semifinal meeting with Spain...
Takefusa Kubo is doing well at the Olympics. He has had a few good games, and has helped Japan advance to the semi finals on Saturday. He is the biggest asset of this Japan team at 19 years of age, and he’s only going to get better. If he continues like this, Real Madrid will be able to get a better loan deal for his performances by saying, “OK, had a mixed 2020/21 season, but look how he played at the Olympics.”
Isn't it nice to see elite teams like Real Madrid championing their young stars who are currently away on international duty at the Olympics?. Every time we see a social media post from a top club boasting about one of their youngster's performances over in Tokyo, a deluded part of our brain thinks 'this might mean they're going to give them a chance next season' - then we realise we're living in dream world.
