One of the most iconic sporting teams on the planet, Real Madrid are titans of the modern game.
Many greats have pulled on the famous white strip over the years. Legends like Ferenc Puskás and Alfredo Di Stéfano laid the foundations for sporting dominance early on.
The star-studded Galactico era of Luís Figo, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham brought a swagger and arrogance to the pitch, while modern heroes like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Luka Modrić and Sergio Ramos continued Real’s dominance, particularly on the European stage.
14 times Los Blancos have lifted the famous European Cup/Champions League, more than any other club and twice as many as AC Milan in second.
From 2014-2018, Real won four Champions League titles in five years and while many of the players who helped them achieve that have moved on, the club are in the process of building their next great side.
With one eye on the future, the new-look Madrid has a focus on youth, with Vini Jr and Rodrygo leading the line ahead of an energetic and skillful midfield of Eduardo Camavinga, Aurélien Tchouaméni and Federico Valverde.
But it’s their latest big-money move that’s been writing all the headlines.

Two goals in his first El Clasico appearance, including a worldie from outside the box, to turn the game around in a 2-1 win, epitomised Jude Bellingham’s first few months at Real Madrid.
The Birmingham-born 20-year-old has had a monumental impact since signing for Los Blancos, with 10 goals in his first 10 league games.
Bursting onto the scene at Birmingham City, he became the most expensive 17-year-old in history when Borussia Dortmund signed him for around £25 million.
His stock continued to rise after impressive performances in the Bundesliga, helping his side to second place in his last season on a dramatic final day.
Then came Real Madrid, swooping in with a bid north of £100 million to secure his services.
Now tipped to become one of the greats of the game and a future England captain, the rise of Jude Bellingham has been supersonic.
