Yesterday Real Madrid in a match against Spurs won the match by 2-0 as Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez scores goals to help their team to reach the Audi Cup Final 2015. Bale scores against his previous club.

James Rodriguez’s Goals is the opener for Real Madrid to separate their team from spurs. Spurs have absolutely no idea how to break down the two strong backs of four that Benitez’s team revert to when they are defending and keep giving away possession whenever they venture out of their own half.

With Bayern Munich also on keen to beat the Real Madrid when they beat AC Milan by the difference of 3-0.After a defeat at the hands of Italian Team AS Roma this past Saturday, Spanish Giants Real Madrid would be looking to get back into the saddle and win their match against Inter Milan.But even with the determination to defeat the English team ahead of La Liga season 2015-16, it would be not an easy task as City is for the treatment of their life and have not lost any of their last eight matches and had an amazing performance last season in English Premier League 2015-16.

Looking at Madrid’s last five matches the team just had two wins and 3 draws coming into this competition. The Spaniards also faced a very tough competition against Manchester City who currently equals them in head to head clash with both teams winning one match each. But none the less would be an interesting match to see as they both would be on a neutral ground and have not competed against each other in past three years.

New England Patriots Players Salaries and Contracts 2015

New England Patriots Players/Roster Salaries and Contracts 2015: The New England Patriots are the Super Bowl Champions, a team that has won five Super Bowls since 2001. Maintaining such a team while keeping in mind the salary cap is a huge task. The Patriots’ schedule, along with their State Run Media followers, has recently led people to believe that they might actually be on the verge of insolvency. Yet, the entire situation is quite skeptical. Having used about 82% of their salary cap last season, they do have a cap space of $16 million approx to save them from insolvency.

New England Patriots Players Salaries and Contracts

As on October 1, the New England Patriots had $120 million in commitments to 57 of their players. The NFL salary cap has been set up to $143 million this year by the NFLPA. Apart from this, the Patriots do have a carryover cap amount of $6 million. But, it’s likely to be earned as incentives from adjustments that had amounted to a negative $4.5 million, further reducing its cap space. Major sponsors this season for the Patriots at the Gillette stadium are Gillette, Bank of America, EMC, Anheuser-Busch, PepsiCo, and Verizon.

It is theorized that the Patriots have benefited majorly from Aaron Hernandez’s grievances settlement. The Patriots received a credit of $1.184 million for the grievance settlement as an incentive. This helps in increasing the gap in the salary cap amount.

Another key aspect is the renewal of Rob Gronkowski’s contract of $56 million over the next four years. They guaranteed Gronkowski’s $4.75 million salaries and $250,000 off-season workout bonus in February. Gronkowski is one of the highest paid players on the New England Patriots.

Apart from that, the restructuring of Jerod Mayo’s contract this year has played a major role in balancing out the cap space for the Patriots. Mayo’s old cap number amounted roughly to $10 million, making him the second-highest paid inside linebacker. This season, his cap number has been cut down to $6.25 million with an incentive of $4.5 million for injuries. Apart from this, Mayo is to receive a signing bonus of $3.6 million which can be prorated by him over the season and an additional bonus of $5, 00,000 if he plays all 16 games. This is major strategizing on the Patriot’s part.

Tom Brady received his final installment of $30 million in February as an amount of his signing bonus that had been guaranteed to him.

The overall New England Patriots roster so far with the player’s average salary and contract terms are as follows:

Thus, the Patriots have very little cap space to spare while bulking up a team that can maintain the team’s status of Super bowl champions. Some major changes have been made to the roster so far, with paying off the commitments made to its players for their contracts, certain additions to the team and letting go of certain players from last season.
