DONE DEAL: Real Madrid stun Barcelona with Takefusa Kubo swoop

Real Madrid have announced the signing of FC Tokyo superkid Takefusa Kubo.

The former Barcelona junior, 18, returns to Europe this summer, choosing Real Madrid ahead of offers from Barca, Manchester City, PSG and Bayern Munich.

It's a major blow for Barca, which had Kubo from 10 years of age before he was forced to return to Japan as part of FIFA's crackdown on the global recruitment of junior talent.

Kubo is currently with the Japan squad for this month's Copa América.
