Isco tribute to Real Madrid as departure announced

Isco has announced he's leaving Real Madrid.

The midfielder is being allowed to come off contract by Real next month.

He posted to social media: "When I was at Malaga and I knew I had to go.

"I got engaged to another team. But Real Madrid knocked on my door and Real Madrid cannot and should not be told no, although there are always exceptions.

"I remember telling my people: 'F***, Madrid hasn't won the Champions League for many years and I have a feeling it's about to fall'. And THE TENTH arrived, everything that comes after is already history.

"9 years later my time at the club that has made it possible for me to fulfill all the dreams I had when I was little comes to an end.

"Apart from fulfilling dreams, winning more titles than I had imagined, playing with the greatest, meeting incredible people: I HAVE HAD A BLESSING TIME AND LET THEM TAKE MY BAILAO OUT OF ME.

"Because without a doubt I keep the good and I hope you do too!!

"I want to thank my teammates, coaches, coaching staff, physios, kit men, workers at Valdebebas and the Santiago Bernabéu for all the work, love and support that everyone needs and that I have never lacked.

"I also want to thank the fans who welcomed me in an incredible way from the first day and who accompany this team in every corner of the world!

"By the way, yesterday I was telling a friend that I didn't understand why they were holding the Cibeles party if number 15 is on its way hahahaha.

"Until always and Hala Madrid."
