Real Madrid signing Isco has revealed that he rejected an offer from Manchester City.

The highly-rated playmaker has arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu from Malaga on a five-year deal but said there was heavy interest from former manager Manuel Pellegrini who has taken the reins at City.

"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," said Isco, who cost Real £23million.

"I had offers from other teams in Europe but it’s impossible to say no to Madrid, it's a dream for me to play here and here I am."
