Former Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello has claimed that his old club has €500million to spend in the coming transfer market.
Los Blancos have endured a poor season, sitting 13 points off the pace in LaLiga having been humiliated by Ajax in the Champions League round of 16 and outclassed by Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-finals.
Madrid has been linked with high-profile moves for Manchester United's Paul Pogba and Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Capello expects them to spend big.
"They told me Real Madrid have €500million to spend on signings," he told Sky Sport Italia. "I was in Barcelona this week and someone who knows Real Madrid really well told me that."
Apart from Pogba and Hazard, the European giants are believed to be interested in French forward Kylian Mbappe with Neymar being another player that has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu.
Others who have been muted to be on their way to the club are Ngolo Kante and goalkeeper David de Gea.
