Real Madrid signing Coentrao: Dream come true

Former Benfica fullback Fabio Coentrao is thrilled with his €30 million move to Real Madrid.

Coentrao signed a six-year deal with Real yesterday.

"It's the dream of any player. Since childhood I imagined playing in this team and it has become real," he smiled.

Coentrao welcomes the battle for a left-back berth with Marcelo.

"Having the team of quality players like Marcelo is good for the group. I will work hard to play and so will he. We will compete for a spot every week and it will benefit the team."
