Real Madrid youngster Takefusa Kubo has joined Villarreal for the upcoming La Liga season.

The 19-year-old spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Mallorca and impressed during his spell, even with the club suffering relegation.

Mallorca pursued another loan deal, but Real Madrid reportedly wished for him to continue his development in the top flight, with Osasuna and Celta interested in a loan deal as well as Villarreal.

Villarreal ultimately won the race thanks to the efforts of Unai Emery, whose influence in working with young players throughout his career swung things in favour of his side, according to AS.

There are no current plans for Kubo to leave Real Madrid on a permanent basis as they view him as a future star, with him potentially taking up one of their non-EU registration slots for the season after next.
