Why Did Pele Never Move To Europe?
Pele played most of his side for the Brazilian club Santos. He never played for a European club.
After winning the 1958 World Cup, he became a football sensation overnight.
The European giants also eyed the young Pele. Clubs like Manchester City, Juventus, Real Madrid, and Inter Milan were fighting to sign him.
But the Brazilian President planned to prevent this by declaring him National Treasure.
