The Japanese Messi
Kubo Salary & Net Worth Revealed
How much does he earn?
In August 2020 the right winger signed a contract with Villareal that nets him a whopping salary of 2.2 Million Euro (2 Million Pound) per year. We have crunched the numbers, this means he earns €10,906 (£9,935) per day and €454 (£414) per hour!
Since you've been viewing this page, Takefusa Kubo has earned...
Wow! This means the average man in the UK needs to work for at least 5.6 years to earn the same as The Japanese Messi earns in only 1 month.
Net Worth & Market Value
12.5 Million Euro (11.4 Million Pound)
30 Million Euro (27.4 Million Pound)
The 21 year old prodigy from the land of the rising sun signed a 5 year deal with the Galacticos of European football, Real Madrid, in 2019 which has taken his net worth well clear of 12.5 Million Euro (11.4 Million Pound). Such mercurial talent, and that too at such a young age doesn't come cheap, expect his market value to lie north of 30 Million Euro (27.4 Million Pound).
Odd one out! The Real Madrid winger is probably the only Madridista in the Los Blancos squad who doesn't have any tattoos on him! We figured being around Sergio Ramos for the next couple of years will surely change that, after all, the captain can be (very) persuasive! (Image: Instagram)
Eyes for the ball, only! Like Lionel Messi, the diminutive Japanese dribbler only has eyes for the ball. Don't fret little Kubo, I'm sure there's an Antonella for you too. She only has to find you! (Image: Twitter)
Family - Get to know them
- Takashi Inui
Coaches so often go under the radar when it comes to a player's development as the spotlight more often than not, always falls on the manger; Takashi Inui played an integral part in the prodigious winger's development, both on and off the pitch, during his spell with RCD Mallorca in the 2019/20 campaign.

Born on June 4th, 2001, in Kawasaki Japan, his affinity for the football was apparent from a very early age, and beginning at the age of 7, the youngster started playing football with a number of academies, including, FC Persimmon, Tokyo Verdy, Kawasaki Frontale, and FC Tokyo. Between 2011-2015 there was even a spell at FC Barcelona’s fabled La Masia, where he was even awarded the MVP, after being top goal scorer with 74 goals in 30 games. The sky seemed to be the limit, but a violation of FIFA rules saw the prodigious talent return to Japan. Upon his return, the winger joined up with FC Tokyo, and made his debut in the J.League at a record setting age of 15 years, 5 months and one day; consequently he became the youngest player to score in the division after netting the winner in a 1-0 win over Cerezo Osaka. The fledgling footballer made a total of 30 appearances for FC Tokyo and chipped in with a combined 11 goals and assists. In the summer of 2014 another Spanish giant, Real Madrid, signed ‘The Japanese Messi’ to their ranks on a five-year deal. However, "the kid" from Japan was loaned out to RCD Mallorca to help him come to terms with La Liga football with regular first-team opportunities. The mesmeric dribbler grabbed the opportunity with both feet and featured in all but three league fixtures during the 2019/20 campaign, netting 4 goals and finding his teammates for 5 more. His successful spell led to another loan move, this time with Villarreal for the 2020/21 campaign.
