Have you ever dreamed of a place where the warm sun dries Iker Casillas tears before they reach his cheek, the Persian Gulf breeze blows through Xabi Alonso's beard and Pepe stomps someone to death on the beach? Then welcome to Real Madrid Resort Island -- a holiday resort in the United Arab Emirates scheduled to open in January 2015.
The 4.6 million square foot venture is in partnership with the government of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah and is expected to attract a million visitors in its first year of operation. But since that's a whole three years away, Jose Mourinho probably won't be one of them.
Hopefully Barcelona will build their own island right next to Real Madrid's, but make it so everything is miniature and inhabited by Ewoks.
