11 January

On this day in 2007, Real Madrid and England midfielder David Beckham shocked the football world by announcing that he had signed a contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS.

Although Beckham had not played as many games as he had hoped under Fabio Capello at the Bernabéu, the England international was still much sought after with interested reported from both AC Milan and Internazionale.

However Beckham decided to take what many considered a step down in his career as he signed a 5-year deal, reportedly worth $250 million, with the American side.

By the end of the season, Beckham had forced his way back into the side as Real Madrid captured their fourth consecutive La Liga title.

Sgorio’s cameras were there to capture his last few moments in Madrid where he spoke to Morgan Jones during the title winning celebrations.
