Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka have both coughed up over £200,000 to hire out executive boxes at Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu for the new season. Cinco Dias says the star signings have taken season-long deals for the boxes so friends and family can watch them play in ideal comfort. Skipper Raul has also extended his agreement for the coming season. None of the three Galacticos were afforded 'special' deals from president Florentino Perez.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo has opted for the spectacular Audi R8 5.2 FSI Quattro to get around the city of Madrid. Audi, a sponsor of Real, made available the model to the Portuguese, which accelerates from 0 to 100 in 3.9 seconds and can reach a speed of 316 km/h.
