Raúl announced his retirement from football just days ahead of the 21st anniversary of his first-team debut for Real Madrid. On 29 October 1994, the forward began a legendary Whites career against Real Zaragoza at La Romareda, going on to earn a place in Madrid's history books with a total of 741 appearances, an all-time club record, and 323 goals.

During 16 seasons at the Santiago Bernabéu, Raúl helped Real Madrid to 16 trophies: three Champions Leagues, two Intercontinental Cups, one European Super Cup, six La Liga titles and four Spanish Super Cups. He scored in the finals that saw Madrid lift their eighth and ninth European Cups, as well as grabbing the goal that delivered the club's second ever intercontinental crown.
