Kubo has notched three goals and provided three assists in 28 appearances during his loan spell this season.
The teenager, christened by some as the ‘Japanese Messi’, will return to Madrid in July following the conclusion of the 2019-20 LaLiga campaign.
Kubo joined Barcelona’s La Masia academy aged 10 in 2011 but the Spanish club was found to have violated FIFA’s international transfer policy for Under 18s meaning he had to return to Japan and FC Tokyo.

He made the move to Madrid last summer, putting pen to paper on a five-year deal, following three years in his homeland.
Kubo has gained valuable experience in the Spanish top flight during his season-long loan at Mallorca.
Madrid can move back above rivals Barcelona to the top of LaLiga with all three points on Wednesday night while Mallorca are in desperate need of win, sitting three points adrift from safety.
