He's making a mistake, chances of winning the CL or the Ballon d'Or are much bigger with Madrid.

The money is getting too big in the sport where the much, much bigger contract offsets the glory/potential sponsorship money from winning trophies like the CL. Institutional clubs like RM, Barca, Bayern, might have big problems in the future if they don't get bought out. RM is succeeding so much because their sporting decisions have been near perfect and they have Papa Perez who is much smarter than Bartomeu and Laporta.
