Indeed, the famous Spanish singer Julio Iglesias is not only a regular in the stands of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, but he also played for Real, and could even have become a professional with the Merengues. Julio Iglesias was born in Madrid in 1943, and played for Real from the ages of 13 to 19, as a goalkeeper. After learning the ropes in the youth teams, he even joined the reserve team in the early 1960s.
