A shocker: Raul moves to Schalke
One can’t believe Raul is ending his Real Madrid career and moving to Schalke. And Guti just bid farewell and might be off to Besiktas. It’s like seeing Man Utd without Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. An era ends at the Bernabeu.
Raul owns the club’s two biggest records: The club’s all time appearance leader with 741 matches and the all time leading goal scorer with 323. A career spanning 16 years and each one of them spent at Real. He was awarded a contract for life in 2008 which stipulates that as long as he plays 30 matches in a season he gets an automatic extension.
Tomorrow there will be a press conference and the club will officially bid farewell to their talisman. But it is final, in Florentino Perez’s Real, there is no place for their most decorated player.
