Real Madrid have unveiled their first signing of the summer after presenting Sergio Canales to the world's media. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder agreed to join the La Liga heavyweights from Racing Santander back in February after a stunning breakthrough season in the Spanish top-flight. Real paid a reported five million euros to sign the highly-rated teenager on a six-year contract. "Competition doesn't scare me. This is a top level squad and I will fight to win titles with Real Madrid," Canales told the club's official website. "It was beautiful to sign for Real Madrid because it means I will play with footballers that make a difference and who people like to watch. "The players on this team are all great and I want to play with all of them. "Kaka and Cristiano (Ronaldo) were my idols just two years ago and they will now be my team-mates."
