Real Madrid Sign Japanese Messi From FC Tokyo

Takefusa Kubo

Real Madrid has announced the signing of Japanese ‘Messi’ Takefusa Kubo, with the Spanish La Liga club describing him as “one of the most promising young players in the world”.

A deal for the 18-year-old has been agreed between Madrid and Tokyo FC for two million euros and the player himself will earn one million euros per season.

“Takefusa Kubo will come in to strengthen the Castilla ranks next season,” La Liga side Real said in a statement on their website.

“A technically gifted and hugely talented attacking midfielder, he possesses wonderful vision, quick feet and has an eye for goal.”

According to Marca, the Japanese youngster dubbed ‘Japanese Messi’ is expected to pen a six-year deal with the club where he will play with Castilla under the orders of Raul Gonzalez.

Madrid went ahead of Barcelona to sign Kubo after the Catalans who had him in their ranks as a youth player were found guilty of youth transfer breaches and given a transfer ban in 2014.

Kubo, who is currently on duty at the Copa America with Japan joined Barcelona’s famed La Masia youth academy aged nine but returned to Japan following Barcelona’s 14-month transfer ban by FIFA.

The youngster is the sixth summer signing made by Real Madrid after the arrival of Luka Jovic, Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy, Eder Militao and Rodrygo.

Trump Refuses To Promise Peaceful Transfer Of Power If He Loses US Election

Published

on

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday, September 23, refused to guarantee that he will transfer power if he loses the US election in November.

When asked at a White House press conference whether he is committed to the peaceful handover of power upon a change of president, he responded: “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens.”

His statement elicited scorn from his Democratic challenger Joe Biden and even from within his own party.

When asked about Trump’s comment by reporters, Biden said: “What country are we in? Look, he says the most irrational things. I don’t know what to say.”

Republican Senator Mitt Romney reacted to Trump’s statement by stating that any hesitation on the core constitution guarantee was “unthinkable and unacceptable.”

“Fundamental to democracy is the peaceful transition of power; without that, there is Belarus,” he tweeted.

Arsenal Receive Thomas Partey Transfer Boost After Atletico Agree Lucas Torreira Terms

Published

on

Atletico Madrid have reportedly agreed personal terms with Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira as they want the 24-year-old to replace Thomas Partey should he leave this summer.

Arsenal have made Partey their number one transfer target but they first have to offload some fringe players to raise funds for the Ghana international.

Atletico will not let Partey leave for any less than his £45million release clause.

Negotiations for both players are expected to take place separately.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Torreira has agree to move to the Spanish capital.

However, Atletico must now agree a fee or loan terms with the Gunners.

“Lucas Torreira has agreed personal terms with Atletico Madrid,” Romano tweeted. “He’s keen to join but agreement with Arsenal has not been reached yet.

“Atleti need to sell Hector Herrera to sign Torreira.”

Arsenal have had to take calculated risks in this transfer window and they raised £20m by selling Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa.

Another couple of stars are expected to be moved on before the north Londoners can make a formal approach for Partey.
