Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has guaranteed Zinedine Zidane a minimum of €500m to splash out in the summer, according to France Football.
And his three main targets are Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba. Sadio Mane is also one of the stars Madrid want to bring to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid are plotting a staggering €280m bid for the Frenchman.
And now France Football claims that Zidane will have significant funds – a minimum of €500m – to strengthen his squad.
Of that figure, €400m is already available while the remaining €100m will come from the sale of Gareth Bale ‘to a Premier League club’.
It has to mentioned, Perez hopes Zidane can help persuade the big names to move to the Bernabeu this summer.
Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard is one of the targets for Real and the 27-year-old has long spoken of his admiration for Zidane.
Hazard is keen on a summer move to Madrid and probably would have been if Zidane had not returned, but the chance to work with his idol makes the possible transfer even more attractive for the attacking midfielder.
And Paul Pogba, admired by Real prior to his return to Manchester United from Juventus in 2016, also admitted last week that he is seduced by the idea of Madrid – especially with Zidane around.
Another player Zidane would like to bring in is Liverpool’s Sadio Mane, according to Marca.
This summer will be different, with funds made available for Zidane and Madrid hopeful that the coach can persuade some of the game’s top talents to join as Real rebuild for the seasons ahead.
