    Where does Madrid get the money for all this during the worst economic times??? Anyway, I hope that team implodes. It's still funny to me that they haven't learned from their biggest mistake ever: letting Zidane's right hand man go, Makalele. Who's going to win the ball back and give it to Kaka or Ronaldo? Is Diarra that good?

    Barca need to get their **** straight over Yaya Toure & Eto'o. I couldn't give two ****s if Victor Valdez leaves.

    Btw, RedxAlonso there is no reports at all coming out of Spain that Barca is interested in Benayoun. Barca is looking at Zhirkov, Ribery (too $$$) and a few others who can play that left flank.

    *Sigh* The summer transfer season is really upsetting.

    For your perusal Mr I, the BBC took a stab at your question.

    BBC NEWS | Business | How can Real Madrid afford Ronaldo?

    " It also helps that Real - from before the 1950s heyday of Di Stefano - is considered the "establishment team" and can call on close links with the government or city authorities when cash is tight. "

    They also forgot to add "help from the referees" when important games are on the line.

    The word on the street(ESPN) is David Villa rejected Chelsea's offer and will be the third galactico signing for Real this summer.

    -------------------Villa/Huntelaar-------------
    Robben-------Kaka/Schneider------Ronaldo
    -------Diarra-------Gago-----
    LB---------Pepe------Heinze/Metzelder------Ramos
    ---------------Casillas---------------------

    They will score loads of goals, but the Pepe/Metzelder pairing ain't all that.

    I heard the same thing. By the end of the summer Real Madrid would have spent around 300 Million Euros for all their signings.

    After Villa, Xabi Alonso will be Perez's next target. Word is Benitez wants Negredo or Huguain included in the package.

    Not that Liverpool can replace Alonso, but having Negredo or Huguain playing alongside Torres would be scary.

    IF it happens, THEN assuming Lavezzi happens...

    -------------Torres----------------
    ----------------Huguain/Negredo------
    Lavezzi-----Gerrard-----------Kuyt
    -------------------Mascherano-----------
    or



    ----------Torres -----Huguain/Negredo---
    Lavezzi -----Gerrard---Mascherano---Kuyt

    plus a right back, then that would make a great summer

    Higuain is LEGIT. Really really really legit. He and Torres would DESTROY the EPL.

    Negredo is supposed to go to Valencia in the Villa deal. Lavezzi is a striker not a mid.

    But he can also play on either wing.
