The Galactico's Are At It Again
In a time when 'Tapping up' has been the buzz phrase of the year, I'm just wondering how long it is going to be before something will be done about Real Madrid.
If reports are to be believed, Real Madrid are about to make a 30 Million quid bid for Arsenal duo, Jose Reyes and Cesc Fabregas.
Within the space of just a few years Real Madrid have attempted to unsettle Patrick Vieira, Ashley Cole, Thierry Henry, Arsene Wenger, Freddie Ljungberg and now Jose Reyes and Fabregas.
Now if their club wants to buy players then they should go through the proper channels and not use our players and manager as pawn's in their presedential elections.
No matter which way you look at it, this is a form of tapping up, it's letting the player know that you're interested in them with out speaking to said players club first. Madrid are the bully boys of the European leagues and yet time after time nothing has been done about them.
It's gone on for years, and all of the governing bodies just seem to allow them to conduct their business in such a way, but surely something should be done.
However, we should be proud that one of Europe's giants covet the cream of our talent, and prouder still, that to date, the cream of our talent has resisted the lure of the Bernabeau.
