The former English international and Former Manchester United man joins the Los Blancos side and claims that he did not watch the Red Devils side for three years after leaving the club.


The former Manchester United midfielder reveals that how his former club made an agreement with the Catalan club before his move to the Real Madrid side back in 2003.

David Beckham won a Champions league and Six Premier League trophies with Manchester United side and in 2003 he joined the Real Madrid with a deal worth €35 million.

But his club Manchester United set him to sell to the Barcelona side, but he said that he was adamant then that if he leave them(Manchester United) he would only join the Real Madrid side.

In an interview on BBC he said: "There was never any revenge. I was hurt and angry at the time at how the situation had gone because throughout the season I was left out of certain games but never thought it would lead to me leaving.

"But I had heard rumours I might be sold. I was holiday in the States with Victoria and one of my friends called and told me it was on Sky Sports that United had agreed terms with Barcelona. I said 'that wasn't right, I don't know anything about it'.

"I then flew back to London. I tried to speak to Peter Kenyon and tried to speak to the manager and he said 'no'. I said 'well I need to speak to him and understand what is going on'. He said 'it's true, we have agreed a deal'.

"That is when I spoke to my agent and said 'if I am going to move, I'm going to move to Madrid'. Within a day, I was sat with the president of Madrid and we agreed that is where I was going to go."

David Beckham also reveals that his relation with the legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson was not so, very good, but he never wanted to leave his childhood club.

He further added: "I didn't watch Manchester United for three years [after leaving].

"I was shocked and devastated because we had just won the league that season.

"[Without a doubt I wanted to retire at Old Trafford] Because Manchester United were my team. I had no aspirations to leave United."
