Today’s fluff is delighted
Real Madrid want the world to know that they have £330m to spend and will use it to bag a new Galactico or two, but the world is unimpressed. After all, that amount wouldn’t even pay for half a Luka Modrić, according to Real’s own valuations. Still, thanks to some obliging Spanish newspapers Real can still get their names linked with Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Eden Hazard again for free, so there’s another win for the lavishly decorated club.
Meanwhile in another world, West Brom are still weighing up whether to offer employment to the out-of-work former Norwich City Galacticos Wes “Wessi” Hoolahan and, um, Russell “Russaldo” Martin.
