Real Madrid fans should keep their eyes peeled on Takefusa Kubo this weekend

La Liga is finally back this weekend as we bid farewell to the international break for now.

Real Madrid will be travelling away to Mallorca on Saturday evening and seeing how the gap between them and the second-placed Barcelona is only two points wide, Los Blancos will definitely be on the hunt for all three points by all means necessary.

But interestingly enough, this particular clash might be even more exciting for the Galacticos’ fans than it first seems.

Of course, their fans won’t really need an excuse to watch that game in any case but seeing how a young, up and coming talent is likely to play for Mallorca on Saturday, this could be something they won’t want to miss, especially considering that player is none other than their own loanee wonderkid – Takefusa Kubo.

Kubo was Real Madrid’s big scoop of the summer. The Japanese spent quite some time in Barcelona’s La Masia but now he’s donning the royal white of Real Madrid.

Still, considering he is still just 18-years-old and with no La Liga experience per se, Los Blancos decided to send him out on loan.

And it just so happens to be that they decided Mallorca is the right place for the youngster’s development. Now, Kubo might face his own club this weekend and it’s bound to be an exciting clash.

So far, the 18-year-old has accumulated 322 minutes from four games in total for his new club.

He also managed to start in two of those games and already has one assist to his name. Apart from that, Kubo’s numbers are not outstanding but he is a young player who’s still trying to adapt and improve.

The Japanese Messi, as he has been described, has recorded 0.8 shots, 0.3 key passes and 1.2 dribbles per game so far. He also averaged 12.2 passes per game with an accuracy of 67.1%.

Clearly, those numbers could be higher but considering he’s a young player who’s currently at a newly-promoted side that’s struggling to keep up with the rest of the competitors in La Liga, Kubo has still been fairly impressive.

Is Federico Valverde the future of Real Madrid's midfield?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The future is definitely bright for the young Japanese prodigy, and if everything goes according to plan, he will be the one to lead Real Madrid’s revolution in the not so distant future.

But first, let’s see how he does this weekend.
