I’m 2009, Florentino Perez returned to Real Madrid as Club President as his second stint at the position. He previously was at the role between 2000 – 2006 where he introduced the Galacticos Policy. This policy makes them sign the very best of players and popular ones every transfer window.
Summer 2009 was no different he signed the following players ⬇️⬇️⬇️
✅ Ronaldo – He was signed from Manchester United for £80M
✅ Kaka – Kaka moved from Milan in a £56m transfer which was a world record until Ronaldo arrived later that summer
✅ Benzema – Karim Benzema was signed from Lyon for £30m – Benzema is still at the club and has become one of the leading figures
✅ Alonso – Xabi Alonso also joined from Liverpool in a £30m transfer
✅ Arbeloa – Alvaro Arbeloa joined from Liverpool in a £3.5m – He began his career at Madrid but made his name at Liverpool
Up till date this has been the most astonishing summer spending spree.
