Real Madrid wonder kid Takefusa Kubo will play for Mallorca this season on a loan deal, according to a report from Jose Luis Sanchez, from La Sexta.

Cadena COPE confirmed Sanchez’s report and added that the clubs are “very close” to reaching an agreement.

Take Kubo was already rumored to join Real Valladolid on a loan deal this summer but the deal stalled and the clubs couldn’t complete the move. The Japanese attacker needs as many minutes as he can get in elite football and it seems that Real Madrid realized that he is probably too good for Castilla.

Mallorca is a good club for Kubo, who will be expected to become an undisputed starter there, even if he lacks experience in the Primera Division.

Confirmation of this loan deal will probably be published soon as both COPE and La Sexta are reliable when it comes to news about Real Madrid.
