One of these days I'm going to take the time to better look at Real Madrid. They're a big club nad have money to spend. But it's not limitless and they don't have a sugar daddy a la Ambromovich to add to their coffers. They just signed a young Argentine, Fernando Gago, for €20.4m. If that was their only big signing of the year, I wouldnt' think much of it. But they signed Ruud van Nistelrooy for €15m. They spent €5.5m on Cassano, €26m on Diarra (who's been riding the pine lately), and €20m to bring in Emerson and Cannavaro. And with €13m spent to bring in Gonzalo Higuaín that puts transfer spending at at least €70 million during the last year. Where does Real Madrid, even given their size, find this money?
