QPR drop plans for glamour Real Madrid friendly

QPR have abandoned plans for a glamour friendly against Real Madrid at Wembley - as it would have left them £500,000 out of pocket, claims the Daily Mirror.

Rangers joint-owner Flavio Briatore is a friend of Madrid president Ramon Calderon and the pair had held talks about a high-profile preseason fixture.

But the game would have cost Rangers £1.2million to stage and the club were not confident of bringing enough fans through the gates to break even.
