Real Madrid have thanked David Beckham for his services to the club in the wake of him confirming his departure to LA Galaxy in the summer.
The former Manchester United ace announced he would leave Real at the end of the season after agreeing on a move to MLS.
Real supremo Vicente Calderon said he felt the move was in the best interests of all parties.
“We have to thank Beckham for being a gentleman in the four years he has been at Real Madrid,” stated Calderon.
“Beckham’s agent told us that they had a very interesting offer and in the end, it has been the best situation for both parties and we must celebrate it.
“The coach has proved that he is not counting on several veteran players and one of those is Beckham.”
