It is necessary to contextualise the things. Sometimes the operations can seem desorbitadas... Until it arrives somebody afterwards and increases the disparate. It is what possibly have happened him to the Madrid with James if it compares with the Barça and 'Ibra'

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Summer of 2009. Zlatan Ibrahimovic Ousts to the Dutch Marc Overmars like the most expensive signing of the history of the FC Barcelona. The Barcelona club pay 66 million euros by the Swedish forward and sends, besides, to Samuel Eto'or to the Inter of Milan. An operation, for many, incomprehensible.

But had a logical argument then. Guardiola Wanted a distinct forward, corpulento and with height. 'Ibra' Was the ideal option and in a moment of personal maturity. Eto'Or no longer explained for the Catalan technician in spite of following surrendering to a supreme level. Many ríeron then of the Barça. And perhaps they had arguments of weight to do it.

And clear, to past bull, that was a quite bad business for the Barça, that saw like Zlatan did not marry with Messi and went after contesting an alone season where marked 22 goals in 46 parties. Never it arrived to understand with the Argentinian and entorpecía the swift attack culé. It sold him by 24 millions to the Milan, that is to say, some 'losses' of 42 million euros. Difficult to explain that Pep 'tired' so fast of his whim in hardly a season.

Now, with the movement that commands to James Rodríguez two seasons yielded to the Bayern, the Madrid shows that it also commits errors. The Colombian arrived by 80 millions and after three seasons abandons the white club -who know if for no longer go back never more-. His first course was more than remarkable, but from the arrival of Zidane has lost a lot of leadership and hardly has arrived to the 60 parties in these two last campaigns. 

That is to say, the Madrid paid 80 millions by a player that has contested 111 parties (65 parties more than Ibrahimovic in the Barça but with two seasons more) and has not been decisive in any title. A whim of Florentino after the World-wide of 2014 that has caused more problems that joys. 

It costs him sell to the Madrid

Although it does some weeks did a comparison of how costs him sell to the Barça, this summer is seeing that to the white club is being him difficult find exit to the players that do not explain for Zidane. James and Morata were two of which could leave box in the arks madridistas: the first goes yielded and the second can finish remaining because the United fichó to Lukaku.
