David Beckham made transfer history by moving from Manchester United to Real Madrid. For Beckham, the boy who had devoted his professional life to Manchester United, where he became a global celebrity, the move to Spain represented the biggest ...
challenge of his career. Real Madrid was proud of its tradition as the most successful football club ever-an institution whose influence in Spain was huge and whose trophy record was unrivaled around the world.
