The Japanese Messi is off to Madrid

It looks like Real Madrid are having the summer of signing big superstars. This has been seen with the side spending over £270 million in the transfer window. A signing they have made which has been a bit quieter than this of Hazard is that of Takefusa Kubo from FC Tokyo. 

More about the young man 

The young 18-year-old will play next season in Madrid and so far it looks like he will not be going out on loan. A tricky skilful player he is and this as meant in Japan he's been known as the Japanese Messi.

He was asked recently what he thought of this and he responded in not too positive a manner as he said: "Well, I don't really like it when people compare me to such a great player as Messi, but I'll just keep working hard to become a better player".

Already playing for Japan 

Having picked up his first cap for Japan in a friendly at the beginning of the month against El Salvador he's already catching the eye on the international stage. It was seen in the opening match for him at the Copa America as he nutmegged Chillian Erick Pulgar.

He also almost grabbed a goal when his skilful play found him in space to get a shot away, his shot, however, hit the side netting. 

Fitting in at Madrid 

The player should not take too long to settle in Madrid as the player speaks fluent Spanish has he spent time when he was younger with the Barcelona youth team. 

His post-match interview after the Chile match showed a high level of maturity too as he said: "We are a complete national team and we have to give everything to win the next match. (on the nutmeg) we've still got two games left in the group, I will at least try to show what I'm about."
