It has been a great rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona for a great time now and it is said to be one of the biggest rivalries in the World Football Federation. Now we will look at the players who left Barcelona for Real Madrid.
He was signed by Real Madrid for whooping 46 million euros from Flamingo in 2017. He debuted for Real Madrid in 2018 and with his game seen at that time, it looked that there is plenty of improvement needs to be done in his game.
When we was asked about the offers he claimed Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain were the other two clubs to approach him with an offer but he denied them to join Real Madrid. It will be interesting to see as the time pass by whether Barcelona will regret their decision or not in future.
Karim Benzema is one of the finest players ever produced by France and he has been one of the greatest talents for years. Way back in 2009 he was signed by Real Madrid for astonishing 35 million euros and it was way too big an amount to be spent on a 21-year-old boy but ultimately it proved to be a master move by Real Madrid in coming years.
He was also approached by Barcelona but he denied them by saying playing for Real Madrid was his dream when he was a 15-year old kid.
Many football fans would be still dreaming of watching both Messi and Ronaldo for the same team but it has not been possible as yet. But it could have been possible if Ronaldo had accepted the offer of Barcelona way back in 2009 and it wouldn’t lead to one of the greatest rivalries at the World stage.
It is rumoured that Barcelona approached him for signing but at that time Manchester United pipped Barcelona with their bid amount which eventually led to his selection in Manchester United.
Other Notable Players who denied Barcelona offer for real Madrid were David Beckham and Alfredo di Stefano.
