Lee Wellings: The Real Illusion - where DO they get the money?

How do Real Madrid do it?

No it's not a rhetorical question, really how do they do it?

For over 100 days the question was when will Gareth Bale join them in a world record deal from Tottenham.

With the deal finally, mercifully done, we now need to ask a more interesting question. How did they do it? I can't be the only one to believe that world record transfers should be more plausibly made by clubs with oil money behind them.
