“I was right to dump Barcelona for the successful Real Madrid”

After five years at Barcelona, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez triggered a release clause in the contract of Luis Figo to bring the Portugal international to Real Madrid in the summer of 2020.

Real Madrid paid a then world record fee of €62 million (£53m/$62m) to sign Figo.

Figo has revealed in an interview with Netflix that he made the right decision to leave Barcelona for Real Madrid.

Figo said: “If you were to ask me which team I’d prefer to be successful, I’d say Real Madrid.”

He added: “With everything I experienced at Madrid, I can say with 100% conviction that it was the right decision to join the club.”
