City Target Gets Beckham's Shirt!
Isco has revealed Manchester City made an offer to sign him this summer but declared that it was impossible to turn down Real Madrid.
Isco: "I have few doubts about coming here, because although I knew that Pellegrini wanted me, once I learned that Real Madrid's interest was serious I didn't think twice.
"I had offers from other teams in Europe but its impossible to say no to Madrid, it's a dream for me to play here and here I am.
"It's true that I've been a Malaga fan all my life but now I'm here no one will be able to doubt my commitment to Real Madrid.
"Winning a place in the best team in the world is very difficult and match time here doesn't come for free, but I hope with hard work I will win my place my team.
"There needs to be a lot of competition in every great team, it's a good sign, and I've come here to find my way into the team and win many things."
Isco will wear the number 23 shirt formerly worn by David Beckham, but he said he chose the number "because it's the day of my brother's birthday".
