Manchester City was this week revealed, by Sporting Intelligence, as the best sports club in the world to earn your living.
It's not hard to see why recent recruits like Jesus Navas and Fernandinho opted to head to the North West of England when the average weekly salary per player is $154,990—the L.A. Dodgers was the second best destination at $143,632.
Just off the pace, in third and fourth place, were Real Madrid ($139,562) and Barcelona ($138,741). Supposedly, the decision for the player would come down to whether it's worth a $15,000 raise to live in Manchester over the Spanish capital or on the Catalan coast.
Without thinking too deeply about it, you'd perhaps expect Madrid to spend a lot more on wages than Barcelona. So, seeing as they don't, what are the main differences between the two clubs?
