Former Manchester United winger David Beckham has revealed how the club had agreed terms with Barcelona prior to his move to Real Madrid back in 2003.
After six Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy, Beckham ended his association with boyhood club United as he joined Madrid in a deal worth around €35 million.
Football legend Diego Maradona has further opened up on his problems with addiction, claiming that taking drugs was the worst decision he has ever made.
The Argentine icon admitted that his habit started at Barcelona in his early 20s, with the problem having continued to plague him until well after his playing career had ended.
After finally conquering the addiction in 2004, Maradona credits God with helping him beat his demons.
