Takefusa Kubo is already loved by the Real Madrid fan base after they 'stole' him from Barça's clutches. The Japanese youngster turned down a return to La Masia once Madrid made him an offer he couldn't refuse. He went from the €250,000 per season deal from Barça to €2m per season with Madrid.

Ernesto Valverde felt a season with Barça B would be the right move and his contract represented that. However, the player changed his agent during negotiations and Madrid offered four times that amount and promised Take a place in the first team squad in 2020.

Kubo will complete preseason with the first team under Zinedine Zidane's orders. The coach wants to see the potential of the Japanese international up close and personal. After that, he'll return to Castilla and work with Raul Gonzalez. The average wage of someone at Castilla is €130,000 per season, some way off what Take will be earning.

Kubo was forced to leave Barça after a FIFA investigation ruled his 'transfer' illegal. He returned to Japan where he played for Tokyo FC. Last season he spent time on loan with Yokohama and now will join Madrid next month.
