Watch: Takefusa Kubo destroys Real Madrid defense in the pre-season training as recording of his first training session gets released.
The Japenese International was seen showcasing his skills and pace, featured on a Real Madrid channel. Seeing his footage, it certainly felt that the 18-year-old surely has the talent to make it big in Europe.
During his days in La Masia, Kubo was regarded as the ‘Japenese Messi’, the ball control by Kubo in footage surely explains that why he got the tag.
The two-minute long video, show few snippets from his training with Real Madrid, and a fun conversation with other Real Madrid’s star signing – Eden Hazard.
Watch the video
His movements on the ball probably would have made Real Madrid fall in love with the highly rated Japenese player. His trickery, and lethal finishing in front of the goal observed in this video has definitely raised the expectations from him.
The 18-year-old player was a part of La Masia until 2015, as he had to leave the Catalan academy, when Barcelona were sanctioned for signing underage players illegally.
Kubo, then signed for FC Tokyo but he celebrated his 18th birthday earlier this month and was subsequently available to return to European football – with Real Madrid pouncing.
Although, it can’t be guaranteed that how will Kubo perform at the highest level competitions for Los Blancos, but since the Spanish Capital club invested only peanuts level money, the risk is not so high. Although, presently things with Kubo in Madrid looks positive. For now, the player will play for Castilla, until he gains the confidence of Zinedine Zidane.
How twitter reacted

Real Madrid signed 18-year-old Takefusa Kubo in the summer from FC Tokyo and he looks insane.
