Real Signing: I'm Grateful To City, But....
Real Madrid recently unveiled their first signing of the January transfer window, and the attacking midfielder has now opened up about leaving Manchester City for Los Blancos.
Brahim Diaz completed his switch to the European champions on Monday afternoon, when he was also unveiled to the media as the club's new number 21.
The 19-year-old has failed to make one appearance in the Premier League this season, and only appeared in the League Cup where he scored two goals.
"I'm looking forward to getting started, it's a unique and special moment. I'm ready to play but the coach will decide," Diaz said, according to FourFourTwo.
"All of the players here are amazing. I want to succeed here and contribute to the team. I'm hungry to play.
"I'm very grateful to City, but now I'm at the best club in the world and I want to start.
"I had three options after deciding to leave Manchester City. One, play at Real Madrid, two, play at Real Madrid and three, play at Real Madrid. It was impossible to go anywhere else.
"I come with the intention of being under the coach's command. I will work very hard.
"With work, humility and hunger the minutes will come. The chances are earned by working hard. I will try to give my best. I've come to win titles.
"As a player, it must be others who judge me. It is a happy moment and I have fulfilled my great dream."
