Takefusa Kubo completes loan move to Villarreal.
The Japanese youngster will play for Spanish side Villarreal next season.
The 19-year old played for now-relegated side Mallorca last season as an attacking midfielder and scored four goals and provided five assists in 36 matches.
He would have the opportunity to play for the Europa League next season after Villarreal finished fifth in the Spanish League.
Villarreal are reported to pay €2.5m to Real Madrid for the 19-year old and also agreed to cover his wages for the 2020/21 season.
¡Sí, sí, sí, Take ya está aquí!

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.”
