I do not know what to think. Is it not strange that some of the best football players of the world play in Spain while Spain is on the brink of collapse?
This is very strange that a country can afford such players while it is in such a bad situation. Who knows, maybe in the near future we see as some players begin to go abroad. For people abroad it must be very strange that we have problems paying our debts while at the same time we have Ronaldo and Messi with us. But as far as I know Messi is not interested in money. It is weird but even for somebody who is not a big fan of football it is nice that at least Messi stays here. I wonder how many milliseconds would Ronaldo remain in Madrid if his huge wages did not reach to his bank account each month.
By the way, which is the connection between the Spanish banks and the world of Spanish football?
