Real Madrid Plenty of deals done in the past

Real Madrid haven’t given up on the idea of signing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman’s market value has dropped over the last year and is some way off the 200 million euros Manchester United wanted for his services last summer.

Transfermarkt now have the midfielder valued at just 80 million euros, which is exactly what has Los Blancos still keen on his arrival.

United have been great allies of Real Madrid‘s in the past, engaging in business together for Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Javier Hernandez and Gabriel Heinze, while Angel Di Maria went in the opposite direction.

The Portuguese change the Spanish side’s recent history, becoming a legend at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo broke all records imaginable in Madrid and won 16 titles, including four Champions Leagues.

Nine years after arriving for 96 million euros he left for 112 million euros to join Juventus.

The Englishman was the cherry on the cake of Florentino Perez’s Galacticos, which he had started to build in 2000.

Real Madrid took advantage of his troubled relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson and paid just over 30 million euros to sign him, making him the cheapest of those big name signings.

Beckham spent four years at Real Madrid, won LaLiga Santander under Fabio Capello and then set off for Los Angeles.

The forward landed in 2006 in another deal that Real Madrid pounced upon when Ferguson chose to sell the Dutchman after he and Cristiano Ronaldo had problems.

At 30, Van Nistelrooy joined Los Blancos and hit the ground running by bagging 33 goals in his first season to win the Pichichi and the title under Capello.

He added another 20 goals the following season before injuries took their toll.

The Argentinian touched down in 2007 and helped Real Madrid to the 2007/08 LaLiga Santander title, which was their second in row.

He played 26 times and was an important member of the backline.

Hernandez arrived later to join Carlo Ancelotti‘s 2014/15 side and although he didn’t have a starring role, he scored an important goal against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi-final.

Now at Paris Saint-Germain, the Argentinian had problems at Real Madrid which caused a separation.

United took advantage of his situation by offering around 80 million euros to sign him.

Things didn’t go to plan at Old Trafford though and he soon joined PSG.
