Real Madrid transfer news: Zinedine Zidane ‘to spend £425million’ on Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe this summer

Zinedine Zidane will reportedly have £425million to spend in the summer to try and rebuild Real Madrid’s squad.

The LaLiga giants have had a disappointing season where they were knocked out the Champions League by Ajax, ending their three years of dominance, and are 10 points behind Barcelona in the league.

Zinedine Zidane recently returned to Real Madrid

Santiago Solari was sacked and Zidane was brought back in to try and restore order just 10 months after resigning from the post.

L’Equipe report that he will have £425million at his disposal to try and lure Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe to the Bernabeu this summer.

Paul Pogba is reportedly wanted by Madrid

Bosses at Madrid reportedly want a return to the Galacticos era where huge names like Zidane, Luis Figo, Ronaldo, David Beckham and Roberto Carlos were brought to the club.

Their spending has been much more reserved in recent years and have saved big fees for the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

Eden Hazard has previously said of his ambitions to play at Madrid

Ronaldo was sold to Juventus for almost £100million last summer but was not replaced and Real instead looked to promote from within.

It is understood Real chiefs are celebrating revenues in excess of £640million from last season and are willing to spend a large chunk on the trio of elite players.
