Club Career

Club(s) After playing schoolboy football in Merseyside, McManaman was offered a one-year schoolboy contract with Everton FC, but this was turned down in favour of a two-year contract and apprentice forms with Liverpool FC. Whom he signed as a professional on 19 February 1990. Liverpool accepted a £12 million bid from Barcelona FC in August 1997, but McManaman could not settle on personal terms. Three months later, Juventus FC had a £11 million bid rejected. Regardless, after 274 league appearances and 47 goals, McManaman signed on a 'Bosman Ruling' for Real Madrid on 29 January 1999, to take effect on 1 July 1999. He played in 94 La Liga matches, scoring eight goals. After reports that McManaman was returning to the Premier League with Arsenal FC or Everton FC, he joined Kevin Keegan's Manchester City FC on 30 August 2003. After 35 Premier League appearances, all under Keegan, McManaman was released on 20 May 2004 by Stuart Pearce.
