The La Liga giants have endured a miserable campaign and are expected to spend big in the transfer market with Zinedine Zidane back at the helm.
Real have struggled to cope without Cristiano Ronaldo and they’ve been linked with a number of stars to bolster their attack.
Chelsea star Eden Hazard is reportedly high on Zidane’s wishlist and it seems almost inevitable that the Belgian will link up with his childhood idol at the Bernabeu.
But the Blues could yet keep their talisman, depending on what route Real take when the window opens.
According to El Confidencial, Los Blancos have two separate transfer plans.
Hazard features on their ‘cheap’ list, with Chelsea believed to be willing to do business for less than £100m as he is out of contract next summer.
But they could decide to make moves for players on their ‘luxury’ list, which would see them splash out and abandon their approach for Hazard.
The transfer revelation comes amid news that:
“Chelsea could yet keep their talisman, depending on what route Real take.”
Manchester United star Paul Pogba heads the list of players after making it clear earlier this season that it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Real Madrid.
Like Hazard, the Frenchman harbours ambitions of playing under childhood idol Zidane.
Reports this week indicated United are not willing to sell for anything less than £130m.
And that’s the same transfer fee Liverpool will demand for Sadio Mane, who is alongside Pogba on the ‘luxury’ list.
The winger has been essential in the Reds’ title charge, scoring 18 league goals to ease Mohamed Salah’s burden in front of goal.
Despite their hopes of signing both Premier League stars, El Confidencial claim Real may choose to put their efforts into signing just one of them.
Adrien Rabiot and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic are also on the list.
Real will be hoping transfer target Paul Pogba can impress tonight to knock their fierce rivals Barcelona out of the Champions League.
