It's cold outside the Bernabéu
Many renowned players left Real Madrid with the desire to be more protagonists and achieve great triumphs, but in many cases they did not shine again in the same way they did in Concha Espina. It is always said that it is "cold" outside of the Santiago Bernabéu, which means that far from Real Madrid the football reality is very different from the one lived inside the club. This fact, always commented by managers and fans, has been proven by many players in their own flesh when making the decision to leave Real Madrid. The last of them is being James Rodriguez, who lives a very difficult time in Munich after a good first season at Bayern. The Colombian star left Madrid in search of minutes and prominence, but just over a year after his departure is seeing how complicated things are outside the Bernabéu. Another 'crack' that lived this situation was Mesut Özil, who said goodbye to the 'merengue' club in the summer of 2013 to set course for Arsenal. The German has had a good performance in London, but away from the one he gave in the capital of Spain, where he came to be considered one of the best players in the world. In the same line as Özil is Ángel Di María, who left the club one year after the German to set course for United. He failed at Old Trafford, but then regained some of his brilliance at PSG, but nothing comparable to his time at the Santiago Bernabéu. And it is that the 'Fideo' surrendered at an extraordinartio level with the white elastic, being next to Cristiano the best player of the team in the year of the Copa-Champions double. Finally, another clear example of how difficult the world of football is away from the protection of Real Madrid is Álvaro Morata. The squad left the club for the first time in 2014 to head to Juventus, a team that did shine, which earned him to return to the team of Concha Espina. But in the summer of 2017, Morata returned from the thirteen times European champion to sign for Chelsea, where since he arrived has been questioned and has not performed at the expected level. All of them are great examples of the privilege of being part of the staff of Real Madrid and that it is not easy to 'survive' away from the shield of the Spanish transatlantic.
