A lie from Atlético de Madrid legend Paulo Futre to Florentino Pérez and the pre-contract signed by Luis Figo’s then representative, José Veiga, were two of the triggers that made it easier for the Portuguese footballer to leave Barcelona in the summer of 2000 and sign by Real Madrid, according to a documentary about the operation that revolutionized the world of football.

Directed by David Tryhorn and Ben Nicholas and produced by Pitch Productions, “The Figo Case: The Signing of the Century” is a documentary film that tries to order the chronology of the signing and provide more details about the Portuguese’s decision to change Barça’s Barça jacket for the white of the eternal rival.
