REAL MADRID will be eyeing up Champions League glory once again, but have to overcome Manchester City in a second leg – after losing the first in a thrilling encounter 4-3.

But, they would have flown to Manchester in style on their own private jet.

Thanks to a hefty sponsorship deal, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Co. get to fly on Emirates A380 jet worth a cool £340m on away days.

Not only does Carlo Ancelotti's side pocket around £62m a year in that exchange, they're treated like kings on their double-decker aircraft.

First off, inside the plane each player has got use of their own private shower – so there's no need for communal showers for these stars.

Then, should they want, they have the option of resting in a fully-functioning bar area with plenty of room to swing a dozen cats in.

If that's not enough for these pampered athletes, the Galacticos also have their own bed to sleep in, which comes with several other cool perks.

There's a personalised tablet that allows you to access 2,500 channels, an alcohol-free mini bar, as well as a small wash cabinet.

Does that mean they're the cleanest club in the world?

Who knows? But what else would you expect from the best team in the world at the moment? Of course they're going to have their own bespoke plane.

And when they land at any airport, they'll hardly be inconspicuous on arrival with the players faces adorned on the aircraft's paintwork.

Fly Emirates have sponsored Real since signing a sponsorship deal in 2013.

They've had their brand plastered across the famous white jerseys in three Champions League wins.

They have similar deals with Arsenal and PSG, who also have use of their Airbus A380.

And the plane itself is a four-engine jet that has become something of a staple since making its first flight in 2005.

It provides seating for 525 passengers, has a design range of 8,500 nautical miles and a cruising speed of around 559 miles per hour.

Simply put, they have no excuses for being late for a game.
