Fifteen-year-old former Barcelona prodigy Takefusa Kubo will be cleared to play for FC Tokyo’s top-flight team, which could make him the youngest ever to appear in the J. League’s first division, a club source said.

Kubo is currently 15 years, 3 months old. Former Japan forward Takayuki Morimoto made his top-flight debut at a league record of 15 years, 10 months and 6 days in 2004.
