It has been confirmed by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that the club are planning to start a women’s football team.
The setting up of it will be focused on training and development, rather than competing.
Whilst many Spanish sides have women’s football teams, Real Madrid have yet to make a move into the area and remain without a women’s side.
Now though, that is about to change.
“First of all, we want to make a women’s football department, for training,” Perez told members on Sunday.
“We aren’t going to bring a team with players from other countries, but women’s football deserves a department, even if it is amateur.”
