The Humble Origins of Barcelona and Real Madrid’s Clasico Superstars | Bleacher Report

On Saturday at the Santiago Bernabeu, arguably—inarguably?—the two biggest clubs in the world will go head to head, with seemingly more individual stars on display than ever before.Luis Suarez could well make his Barcelona debut, while James Rodriguez’s summer arrival at Real Madrid ensured the ever-escalating arms race between these two sides remains evenly poised.Both sides have immensely attacking players to call upon, individuals who are supremely well compensated for their talent. Some, like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, earn more than £250,000 a week; the sides’ respective attacks cost nearly £1 million per week to put out on the pitch.This is both the biggest game and one of the most expensive; the way modern football currently is, the two aspects are almost synonymous.That makes the players involved millionaires beyond the wildest dreams of 99.9 percent of the population, just as they have an ability 99.9 percent of the world do not have. via | Bleacher Report
