One of the most important consultancy sport companies in the world has presented the results of a survey where Real Madrid is the club with the biggest fan base in the world. http://www.sportundmarkt.de/PHP/asiatempE3.php?leitid=4.2.61 The Global Football Monitor shows that Real generates the highest levels of interest around the world with a potential global fan base of around 490 million, compared to Manchester United’s 350 million. I had listened this news few months ago in several Spain Radio programs. But i couldn't find the link until i read this article about Real Madrid in UEFA.com http://www.uefa.com/competitions/UCL/news/Kind=8192/newsId=267224.html The sigh of relief doubtless also was equally driven by the 490 million Madrid sympathisers around the world, as was recently calculated by a SportUndMarkt survey. A important thing about this survey is that was made at the beggining of this season after the RM worse season in the last years. That means that Real Madrid fan base is quite solid. A soundness probably earned by the success of the team in the course of history.
