Real Madrid’s latest signing isn't exactly worth £86 million like Gareth Bale but he could be one day - that may be some way off however as he is only nine-years-old.

Los Blancos have snapped up young Takuhiro Nakai from Japan, and judging by his skills, the boy is destined for the top.

Nicknamed Pipi, the Spanish giants have placed him in their Cantera – their academy – in the hope of developing him into a genuine world beater.

While that may be some way off it does raise one exciting prospect – he could one day go head-to-head with Barcelona’s own Asian sensation in Takefusa Kubo in El Clasico in about 10 years’ time.

Until then check out videos of both – Pipi above and Take below – and tell us who you think has the potential to go all the way.
