New Real Madrid signing Andriy Lunin says he rejected “3,000 offers” before joining the European champions.
Madrid announced on Friday evening that they had signed Ukrainian goalkeeper Lunin on a six-year deal from Zorya Luhansk. The 19-year-old had previously been linked with a number of clubs, including Liverpool.
The teenager is a self-confessed Real Madrid fan and has revealed that he rejected a number of offers in order to seal a dream move to the Bernabeu.
“It was my dream to play at Madrid, I said it publicly in the press of my country, that I’m a Real Madrid fan, I already was before,” he told Marca. “Everyone knows that we had 3,000 offers but Madrid is my dream, I did not come here for money.”
