Real Madrid 'have €500m' to spend this summer: Man Utd and Liverpool stars to join Hazard?

REAL MADRID have €500m to spend this summer, according to former boss Fabio Capello, and Eden Hazard could be joined by a host of Galacticos in the upcoming transfer window.
Real Madrid are expected to undergo a major squad revamp this summer after a shoddy season in all competitions.
At the beginning of the year, the European champions were facing up to losing Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo - both key components in winning three Champions League trophies in a row.
And the departures clearly hit hard, with replacement boss Julen Lopetegui getting the sack in October and then also axing his replacement Santiago Solari in March.
It has led to Florentino Perez returning to Zidane basically on his knees, who agreed to take over for a second time just 10 months are resigning.
However, the legendary Frenchman is expected to be given new powers - including greater say in transfer dealings.
Two stars have already signed in Eder Militao and Rodrygo but a whole host of stars are set to join them this summer.
One man that looks certain to make the move to the Bernabeu is Chelsea star Hazard, with Marca reporting that a £100m deal has been struck and the transfer will be wrapped up in the coming days.
And former Real boss Capello, who still has friends at the club, has revealed that Los Blancos have over £430m (€500m) to play with this summer.
"They told me Real Madrid have €500m to spend on signings," he told Sky Sports Italia.
"I was in Barcelona this week and someone who knows Real Madrid really well told me that."
So who could be joining Hazard in showing off their shiny new Real shirts?
Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba has had his future discussed at length this season after falling out with Jose Mourinho.
But the Special One’s exit has appeared to do little to appease the World Cup winner.
Real are interested in the Frenchman and have been since he left Juventus in 2017, but a massive bid would be necessary to dislodge United’s stubborn stance on their prized asset.
Sadio Mane
Sadio Mane has been Liverpool’s top man this season, plundering goals for fun as the Reds chase the Double.
The Senegal striker sunk Bayern Munich earlier in the Champions League and was also on the scoresheet against Porto to set up a semi-final tie with Barcelona.
Mane’s 22 goals come at a slightly better rate than team-mate Mohamed Salah’s, with the former Southampton scoring a goal every 164 minutes compared to the Egyptian's 165.
Real have taken an interest as they look to sign a goalscoring winger, with Gareth Bale set to be axed.
Christian Eriksen
Christian Eriksen has been locked in a contract wrangle with Tottenham for many months now and Spurs are starting to accept that they may lose the Dane.
The former Ajax midfielder has built up his reputation as one of the best playmakers in the Premier League and Real are looking to spruce their midfield.
Toni Kroos is coming off the back of his worst season at the Bernabeu while Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric has not showcased the form that won him the top individual prize in months.
Spurs have reportedly slapped a £80m price-tag on the 27-year-old, a fee Real are willing to pay.
