Real Madrid is embarking on a "New Galacticos" era, with the signing of Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul Albiol and another star to be named later.
In the process, Madrid president Florentino Perez has splashed out over $300 million, an astounding figure in these tough economic times.
Even though Madrid has access to vast amounts of money (unlike most countries and financial institutions in the world), it is ultimately cash that limits Perez from signing a starting eleven of Galacticos.
But what if you had access to an unlimited stash of cash! (just a little bit more than what the Manchester City owners have)
Who would you sign?
I will unveil my starting eleven of Galacticos.
The challenge: you can only chose one player from a given nationality (i.e. you can't have more than one player from the same national team).
In homage to Perez's marketing tactics, this will maximize the global reach of my team and garner increased revenue.
My formation: An uber-offensive minded 3-4-3. Why, because it would be fun to watch and tactically it features triangles and diamonds all over the pitch.
Will you agree with my picks? Probably not, but it will be a fun debate.
Please put your starting eleven in the comments section.
Here we go.
