Real Madrid signing names dog after Barcelona star

Isco was unveiled to the press this week after making the £23m move to Real Madrid. Manchester City looked like favourites to sign him at one stage but the Spanish giants swooped in with an offer the young star couldn’t refuse.

During Isco’s first press conference, one of the questions asked was about the name of his dog. It turns out that he named him “Messi”.

“I also had another dog called Figo,” he said. “It’s just an anecdote. I’m not going to change my dog’s name from Messi now because if I did, he would ignore me.”
