A deal between the Nigerian government and one of the most richest football clubs in the world, Real Madrid FC will soon be signed according to Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State. "The commissioners for sports and investment are going to Spain to confirm and sign an agreement with Real Madrid for sporting and football collaboration," he said.

Once the deal goes through, Real Madrid will use Nigeria as a ground to scout for talents to train and market. The governor said a stadium will be built for the project, stressing "land has already been set aside for that purpose".
