SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: THE MANCHESTER UNITED - REAL MADRID CONNECTION

THE MANCHESTER UNITED - REAL MADRID CONNECTION

REAL MADRID & English Football giant MANCHESTER UNITED meet again this Wednesday night at the "Santiago Bernabeu Stadium" ( Madrid ) for the 1ยบ leg last 16 Champions League clash. The English Press have already tagged the game as "the match of the year".

The label is very close to the truth, every time these two Clubs meet the spectacle & the emotions are assured. 



Yet the Clubs have more in common than just emotional & historical Football games & results. They also have a history of sharing players, an interesting list of players that have either played at Manchester United & gone to Real Madrid, & some vice versa. Check these names:


DAVID BECKHAM: 11 seasons as red, 4 as white: 35 M€ transfer fee

VAN NISTELROOY: 5 seasons as red, 4 as white: 15 M€

CRISTIANO RONALDO: 6 seasons as red, 4 as white: 94 M€

GABRIEL HEINZE: 3 seasons as red, 2 as white : 12€ millones.

MICHAEL OWEN: 1 season as white, 3  as red

LAURIE CUNNINGHAM: 3 seasons white. Loaned to United. 5 games

United sells & Real Madrid buys: 160 M€ for Beckham, Van Nistelrooy, Heinze & Cristiano Ronaldo.

As we can see both Clubs share more than just playing Football games
