Former Real Madrid manager Fabio Capello is of the opinion that Real Madrid is prepared to spend big this summer, according to report.

The return of Zinedine Zidane will see a mass exodus of players both in and out of the club and Capello believes Real Madrid has a huge amount of €500m to spend this summer to land some of their desired targets.

"They tell me Madrid have €500m to spend on signings this summer," he said on Sky Italia.

"I was in Barcelona this week and someone who knows a lot about Real Madrid told me that.

"In his first era, Zidane was put in charge by Florentino, now this time Florentino has asked him to come back."

On the priority is Chelsea ace Eden Hazard who has expressed his desired to play for Zidane and Real Madrid.

Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe are also the list but Real Madrid could look elsewhere if they are unable to convince Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain board to part ways with their stars.
