Real Madrid lose massive €68M on Dutch flop
Real Madrid's Dutch experiment has cost the club €68.5 million.
Two season ago, six Dutchman arrived, the aforementioned duo, plus Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for a total of €127.5 million. And they have all left for fees totalling just €59 million - not including wages and bonuses.
Real president Florentino Perez, says El Mundo Deportivo, never rated any of the Dutch and is happy to clear them off his books.
