“Welcome to Real Madrid, starting today you will begin to feel a special kind of passion”, stated Florentino Pérez.
Danilo was presented as a new Real Madrid player in the presidential box of the Santiago Bernabéu. Under a great weight of expectation and with numerous media outlets and supporters in attendance, Florentino Pérez welcomed him: “Now you are here at Real Madrid and I know you have dreamt about this moment. Real Madrid welcomes the arrival of a man who was sought after by a number of the biggest clubs in Europe, but he knew for sure that he wanted to join this team”.

“We all wish you the best so that you can display the quality and talent you possess. Walking out onto the pitch will undoubtedly be a moment you will never forget. Starting today you will begin to feel a special kind of passion. Enjoy it as best you can and never give up”.

Florentino Pérez: "Enjoy this experience as much as you can and never give up".

“These stands will push you on in every game. The supporters and members pour their hearts and souls into this club from every corner of the world and you are going to see why this institution is so legendary, but also why it is so demanding. That is part of what makes us winners. We are constantly working towards perfecting ourselves in search of excellence. This badge does not understand the meaning of discouragement and we have to give it our all every season. Being the greatest club in the world implies a great deal of responsibility”.

Danilo: “This is a dream from childhood come true”
An emotional Danilo took to the floor afterwards: “I would like to thank God for keeping me strong in order to play football, as well as all the people who made this day possible. Thanks to the fans for the love they've shown. This is definitely one of the happiest days of my life. All I can promise is that I will give it my all on the pitch in each match, that's the only way I know how to compete. I am only capable of going out and looking for a win. Hala Madrid!”. The ceremony concluded with a group photograph of the new Real Madrid player alongside Florentino Pérez and various members of the Board of Directors.
