The stature and pedigree of this team within the world game means that competing on all fronts for trophies is the minimum requirement for president Florentino Perez and the club's fans. With a squad packed full of elite players, they are well equipped to rotate between the Spanish league, Spanish Cup and Champions League. When Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale is unavailable, the likes of Isco and Jese are there as backup. Last summer, the club spent around £25 million on Mateo Kovacic, a huge fee to pay for a player who is essentially an understudy to Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and James Rodriguez in midfield.
