On the back of a poor season, a campaign that has seen the Spanish giants, Real Madrid, reappoint Zinedine Zidane as their manager, it seems that move could have ramifications for the Premier League.
According to the red-top publication, the Sun, the Spanish club are set to spend big this summer.
It seems that pursuing Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, a player who could cost them circa £100 million in transfer fees alone, isn’t enough to satisfy their desire to make an instant return to the big-time.
Our referenced source is also reporting that Real Madrid are intent on also spending big to secure the services of our 26-year-old midfielder, Paul Pogba.
With the outlay for both Hazard and Pogba set to exceed circa £200 million, the immediate question that springs to mind is how are they going to comply with the Financial Fair Play Regulations?
It would appear that the most likely departure will e Gareth Bale with his sale expected to generate circa £80 million, let us just hope Manchester United don’t get involved in some kind of player swap deal whereby Pogba goes one way and Bale comes the other, it’s not what we need, in my opinion.
