|Plot Summary of White Angels|
Subtitled Beckham, Real Madrid & The New Football, White Angels tells the inside story of a season at the soccer club, Real Madrid.
John Carlin is able to use his contacts as an English journalist living in Spain and close to the club to interview all of the major players involved in the transfer of David Beckham to Madrid and explores what the transfer means in the context of world soccer today.
Beckham is easily the most valuable commodity in soccer due equally to his playing prowess and good looks.
While the author is uplifted by the type of soccer that Real Madrid can produce, comparing it to the great painters or composers, he also paints his own picture, of a sport where one eye is always on the bottom line.
