In terms of his football career, he began playing at the age of seven. He began his football career with FC Persimmon, a local club in his hometown of Kawasaki. The FC Barcelona School team chose him to compete in the Sodexo European Rusas Cup, which was held in Belgium, based on his talent. Later, he joined the Kawasaki Frontale junior youth team.

He passed the trial for FC Barcelona’s youth academy, La Masia, in August of 2011 and was eventually invited to join them. He played for Barca Alevi there, and in his first full season, he appeared in 30 games. He led the league in scoring with 74 goals.

Based on his performance in his third full season, 2014-15, he was promoted to Barca Infantil A (U14). Later, it was revealed that the Spanish club had violated FIFA’s under-18 transfer policy, rendering him ineligible to play. After all of this, he returned to Japan and joined FC Tokyo’s junior youth team.

He joined Real Madrid FC in 2016 and was promoted to the senior team by September when he was only fifteen years old. On November 5th, he made his official J3 League debut as a halftime substitute in a match against AC Nagano Parceiro. Takefusa Kubo made his J.League debut at the age of 15 years, five months, and one day. After making his J.League debut on April 15, 2017, he became the league’s youngest player to score.

His goal proved decisive in the team’s victory over Cerezo Osaka U-23. With that in mind, it was only a matter of time before he made his first-team debut in the J.League YBC Levain Cup. He played 25 minutes and contributed to his club’s victory over Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo. Then, in November 2017, FC Tokyo informed him that his contract had been modified and that he was now being compensated as a first-team player.

He signed a half-year loan with Yokohama F. Marinos on August 16, 2018. In an away game against Vissel Kobe, he scored his first goal for the Marinos. Since the start of the 2019 season, he has been a regular for FC Tokyo in both the J.League YBC Levain Cup and the J.League.

He signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid in 2019. On June 14, he joined their U-19 team, but he was expected to play for Real Madrid B during the 2019-20 season. Despite this, he traveled with the first team on Real Madrid’s pre-season tour of the United States and Germany.

On August 22, 2019, he became the third Japanese player to join Mallorca, following Yoshita Okubo and Akihiro Ienaga. He joined RCD Mallorca on a season-long loan and made his La Liga debut on September 1. Despite their club’s 2-0 loss to Valencia, it was a fantastic event for him. Kubo became the youngest Japanese player to play in a Top 4 European league at the age of 18 years, two months, and 28 days.

Takefusa also scored his first goal on November 10, 2019, and his second goal on February 21, 2020, both against Villareal. Two weeks later, he scored his third goal against SD Eibar. He was loaned to Villareal CF until the end of the 2020-21 season on August 10, 2020. Several clubs attempted to sign the 19-year-old after he established himself as a rising star during his previous season.

Furthermore, his move to Villarreal, who finished fifth last season, will give him the opportunity to compete in the UEFA Europa League against some of Europe’s best clubs. The head coach of Japan’s national and Olympic teams, Hajime Moriyasu, praised his transfer.

From U-15 to senior level, he was a member of the Japan football team. He was named to Japan’s U-20 national team for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup at the age of 15. Takefusa was called up to the senior team for the 2019 Copa America as soon as he turned 18 years old.
