Letter has been hand signed at the bottom by club treasurer Raimundo Saporta

Saporta started at Real Madrid as an accountant in May 1953. Among his first tasks at the club was to act as the club’s emissary in the Di Stefano transfer, where he helped negotiate the deal that would have seen the Argentine player play for Real Madrid one season and Barcelona the other until the Catalans sold their rights to the player to Madrid. Saporta would later play a role in the transfers of Raymond Kopa, Ference Puskas and Franciso Gento. In 1954, Saporta was made club treasurer where he managed the club’s rocky finances, opening a savings account for every player on Real Madrid’s books to check their spending. Much like Bernabeu, Saporta was known for his paternalistic style of management earning the nickname “Uncle Rai” among the Real Madrid players.
