RAÚL, the Spanish front man has agreed a two year deal with Bundesliga’s Schalke.

Raul went on a free transfer having broken ties with Real Madrid.

Raul has spent his entire career in the Bernabeu becoming a legendary figure there.

Born Raul González Blanco, but known simply as Raul. The Spanish hero is a three time winner of the Champion’s League and an all-time goal scorer for the competition.

He’s scored 323 goals for Real in 740 appearances. Raúl is also the all-time goal scorer with the Spanish national team. Having formerly captained the team, the star struggled to make the Spanish team since coach Manuel Pellegrini’s arrived in 2009.

Earlier this summer the striker revealed that he had offers from Germany and England to consider.

Schalke’s coach Felix Magath said he was delighted with his signing.”This is great news for Schalke,” Magath told the club’s website. I am pleased that we have succeeded in signing such an exceptional footballer and world-class striker.

“His qualities will help us. His commitment will be crucial in our efforts to strengthen the squad for future success.
