They're all talking about...a Galacticos theme park

THE REAL Madrid president, Florentino Perez, came clean this week over plans to turn the club's training ground into a theme park and Barcelona were involved in a spying scandal.
Perez admitted that he will look to dedicate 110 hectares of land on the Valdebebas training complex to a Disney-style tourist attraction with work starting as early as 2010 and other similar projects in Asia and the US to follow.

Meanwhile Barcelona fans had altogether more sinister things on their minds. Four of the club's vice-presidents have been spied on ahead of elections at the end of the season, though Barcelona insist the current president, Joan Laporta, was not the man who instructed private firm Metodo 3 to investigate Rafael Yuste, Jaume Ferrer, Joan Boix and Joan Franquesa.
