A Football Club with the dimensions of Real Madrid & their huge salary obligations to attract & keep the Best players in the World needs Champions League participation, victories & the title to maintain afloat with their status & operating requirements. Tomorrow, Tuesday night , there is a hell of a lot at stake for Real Madrid & without sayiny also for Manchester United.
Real Madrid has won up to this stage 16,6M€, plus all the money earned from the home matches of the Group phase, that is 32M€. If Real Madrid manages to continue, go through into the final & win the Champions League tournament the Spanish Football Club could earn up to 80M€. Big money.
I will join all of these observers & put forward my ideas of a possible starting 11 line-up for Manchester United & Real Madrid. My only doubt is if Sergio Ramos will move to a right wing to allow Pepe & Varane to play together as Central Defenders, or Varane will fill in for Pepe. Here we go:
Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Carrick, Cleverley, Welbeck, Rooney, Kagawa; Van Persie.
I reiterate they are speculative line-ups. The confirmed final 11 will be announced an hour or so before the actual match. A game not to be missed as the current tie is at 1 - 1 each & anything can happen tomorrow at "Old Trafford". May the better & richer team win tomorrow.
