Real Madrid and Barcelona are set to play a friendly game in the holy city of Mecca, as part of the opening ceremony for the new high-speed train line (AVE) that a Spanish consortium is to build in Saudi Arabia.

It has not been officially confirmed when the mach will take place but according to the match promoters it will definitely be before the train line's finish date in 2016. A consortium of 12 Spanish companies was awarded the project which will link the cities of Medina and Mecca, 450km apart in Saudi Arabia.

The only thing we're wondering is how long will their shorts have to be and is this part of Ronaldo's master plans?
