Thumbs up to the Real Mallorca switch

Real Madrid's Japan worldwide Takefusa Kubo has joined fellow La Liga side Real Mallorca on loan for the remainder of the season, both clubs said on Thursday.

"Real Madrid and RCD Mallorca have agreed to the loan of Takefusa Kubo for this season until June 30, 2020", Real Madrid wrote in a statement.

A product of FC Barcelona's youth academy, Kubo played for Japan in the recent Copa America and is considered a key player for the national team at next year's Tokyo Olympics.

In June, Kubo became Japan's second-youngest global at the age of 18 years, 5 days.

Man with arsenal allegedly threatened hotel mass shooting
Montoya's arrest is the latest in a string of mass shooting threats after deadly shootings in El Paso, Texas , and Dayton, Ohio . On 8 August police in Nevada arrested Conor Climo, 23, and said he had bomb making materials at his Las Vegas home.

The Japanese star only joined Real Madrid in the summer but despite shining on their preseason tour, Zidane doesn't feel he is ready for a first-team place yet.

The newly-promoted club began with a 2-1 win over Eibar last weekend.

Due to Barca's breach of Fifa's worldwide transfer policy for youth players, he was ineligible to play for the club.

Kubo had been linked with a move to Real Valladolid, who are owned by former Madrid striker Ronaldo, but Mallorca eventually landed the highly rated playmaker.
