Real Madrid Players Spotted Shopping In Downtown Montreal (Video)

I always thought soccer stars got Adidas for free.

Real Madrid in Montreal

In case you haven't heard, one of the world's most popular and winningest soccer clubs, Real Madrid, is in Montreal practicing for their upcoming United States tour.

For 10 days, some of the world's best football players are in our city enjoying everything it has to offer. They arrived in town about a week ago, greeted by an adoring crowd of fans at Montreal's Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Since then, they've been hard at work at the Centre Nutrilait practice facility. 

It's no surprise then, that one fan managed to catch them on a shopping spree in downtown Montreal. In typical soccer star fashion, some members of the team were spotted at the Adidas store on rue Sainte-Catherine. Soccer stars are just like us — shopping for the dopest kicks and latest drops!

When you're in Montreal, you enjoy yourself! Real Madrid fan and MTL Blog reader @nishgupta92 spotted a few members of the team, including Karim Benzema and Marcelo, at the popular downtown store. I wonder what they bought...

A rabid detachment of Real Madrid fans swarmed the front of the store to catch a glimpse of their favourite players. To be honest, I thought soccer superstars get Adidas for free, but hey, it's nice to see them shopping amongst the riff-raff.

@nishgupta92 says he "was there yesterday i.e. 15th July, from 5:30 PM till 6:40 PM. [I] was waiting for the players to come out of the Adidas store at Ste-Catherine, Montreal. But they were busy shopping and didn’t come out."

"Seeing them made my day. [I] was feeling very lucky to see them in front of me for the first time as I have watched them only on screens."

With a squad of 29 players in Montreal, Real Madrid is sure to be all over the city, offering fans a chance to glimpse their favourite player during the team's stay. Along with superstar coach Zinedine Zidane, the team has brought along Hazard, Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, Javi Hernandez, Marcelo, and more!

Real Madrid will be practising in Montreal until July 19th! Don't miss out on seeing your favourite soccer stars!

Though practices are closed to the public, you can spot them outside the Ritz-Carlton Hotel or on the streets of Montreal!
