    Real Madrid and Barcelona's clash in the Supercopa is more than just a game between two teams, it’s also "a duel between two different organizational models,” according to Alfonso Callejas of SPORT. Real “has no economic limit” to bring in the best footballer in the world. After signing Luka Modric from Tottenham, the total cost of its players is "an insane" €501M ($628.2M). That number more than doubles the €244M ($305.9M) that the Catalan club has spent (SPORT, 8/28). SPORTUNE.fr's Marcelo Martins wrote the difference can be seen by looking at the five most-expensive transfers on both teams.
