Real Madrid Football Club
I decided to type my essay about Real Madrid who was voted the most successful club in the 20th century. This award doesn’t come easy. Real Madrid has 31 La Liga titles, 18 Spanish Cups, 8 Super Cups, 1 Cope Eva Duarte, 1 Cope del la Liga, a record 9 UEFA Champion Leagues, 2 UEFA Cups, 1 UEFA Super Cup and 3 Intercontinental Cups.

These are the four most expensive athletes on the team also including Ronaldo and Kaka. Some other crazy kicking footballers is the clubs all time team leading match appearances and goals.
