Real Madrid is the polar opposite of their rivals Barcelona. While Barcelona mainly spend their earnings in improving their youth academy, Real Madrid on the other hand are the pole opposite.
Ever since Florentino Perez was elected the club president the club got its training ground rezoned and used the money to begin assembling the famous Galáctico side including players such as Zinédine Zidane, Ronaldo, Luís Figo,Roberto Carlos, Raúl, Fabio Cannavaro and David Beckham.
Although the team did not live up to the price budget as despite a UEFA Champions League and an Intercontinental Cup win in 2002, followed by the League in 2003, the club failed to win a major trophy for the next three seasons
Florentino Perez would resign in 2006 but he came back in 2009 and signed Kaka from AC Milan and C Ronaldo from Manchester United with a world record fee of £80 million.
The Brazilian Kaka however was staggered with injuries throughout his stay in the Spanish club but C.Ronaldo has been nothing short of spectacular and the key player of Real Madrid. Unibet recently made him their top player of 2013, and anyone having a sports bet on the FIFA World Player of the Year should look no further.
In response to Neymar’s signing, Real Madrid signed Gareth Bale hoping to pair up with C.Ronaldo down the flanks in what just might be one of the best attacking duo’s in modern times.
So far, the former Tottenham player has not disappointed with stellar performances in each match he plays in.
The current coach Ancelotti recommended the team to sign up Isco which they did and will let everything go when they face Barcelona in the Spanish League ‘’Clasico’’.
Real Madrid are 2 points behind Barcelona in the League so expect them to give it their all and try to take the crown away from their rivals.
