Real Madrid is probably the greatest club in football history when it comes to title winning milestones. But what is it that makes them such a huge sporting unit?

In 2009, Madrid signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United which was one of the most expensive transfer deals of all time. And now we all know him as the second highest goalscorer for a club, the first being Lionel Messi who has scored more than 500 goals for Barcelona.

In 2011, the Spanish club signed Karim Benzema who went on becoming their second highest goalscorer of all time. Two years later, a new front three was known to be called as ‘BBC’ (Bale Benzema Cristiano) since Madrid had signed Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur.
