Lil Wizard: Real Madrid sign 9-year old Japanese wonderkid Takuhiro Nakai to their cantera

The Barcelona canterano Take will have competition for attention back in his homeland Japan this season now that Real Madrid have signed a Nippon wonderkid of their own: 9-year old Takuhiro Nakai, who they signed from Shiga Prefecture last week, on 28 September.

Nicknamed Pipi (which will work pretty well in Spain), the kid displays a frightening range of skills for such a young age – rainbow flicks, round-the-worlds, and, aside from the showboating, velcro-like dribbling and speed.

He’s been a sensation in his homeland since the age of 7, when he appeared on Japanese TV showing off his sensational skills.

Not to put too much pressure on him, but there’s no denying it: the boy’s a bit special!

What odds would you get on Take and Pipi facing off in a Clasico in the not-too-distant future?

Wonderful talent, the boy is a wizard!!! Hope he develops into a great player.
