Sky Sports News have released a video ahead of El Clasico comparing Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale to Barcelona’s Neymar.
Bale and Neymar were the respective Spanish giants mega summer signings in 2013, with Real spending £85 million to prise Bale from Tottenham while Barcelona (as we now know) spent £71 million on getting Neymar from Santos.
The Sky video investigates the controversy over Neymar’s move to the Camp Nou, calling the Brazilian’s signing a “vanity project” for former Barca president Sandro Rosell. By comparison, Bale is labelled as the “right player at the right time” for Madrid.
