Samuel Eto'o joined Real Madrid in 1997, but he could only train with Real Madrid B, as he was still a minor. Real Madrid B were relegated to the third tier, Segunda División B, where non-EU players are not allowed, and as a result he was loaned to second-division CD Leganés for the 1997–98 season, when he was only in the tenth grade. After making 30 appearances for the club and only scoring 4 goals, he returned to Madrid following the end of the 1998–99 season. In January 1999, he was loaned out to Espanyol but failed to make any appearances for the club.
