Real Madrid winger Takefusa Kubo explains Villarreal choice: This was the best

Real Madrid winger Takefusa Kubo is delighted with his move to Villarreal.

After a season on-loan with Real Mallorca, Kubo has joined Unai Emery's Villarreal in a similar arrangement.

The Japan international said: "I am very happy to be part of this great team. I just saw the field, I already played here once, but it is spectacular as the Ciudad Deportiva. I hope to have a good season both individually and collectively.

"I hope I can have a great season, let's see how things are happening.

"I chose Villarreal because it is the best option, that's what I, my family and representatives think, so now I have to prove it."

Kubo added: "Yes, there were other offers, but this was the best, that's why I came here. I'm only focused on Villarreal, I don't think about other things. I'm 100% at the service of Villarreal, as I did last year at Mallorca."
