Barcelona sporting director Carles Rexach has accused Real Madrid of discriminating against players based on their looks.

Real sold Angel di Maria to Manchester United for around £60m last summer and Rexach claims the Argentina star was moved on because he was not attractive enough.

Di Maria’s Bernabeu exit came just 12 months after Mesut Ozil – another player who could be described as ‘funny looking’ – left Madrid to join Arsenal for £42.5m.

“[Real president] Florentino Perez looks at the world market and wants a team of Galacticos for everyone to admire,” Rexach told Regio7, according to The Metro.

“[Former Real coach] Vicente Del Bosque and Di Maria are too ugly for Real Madrid.”
