Real Madrid plotting £500m Premier League raid for Kane, De Gea, Hazard

It has been a miserable season for Real Madrid so far.

The reigning La Liga champions currently stand 19 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona, and were unceremoniously dumped out of the Copa del Rey this week by a 2-1 home defeat to local neighbours Leganes.

Just how do they plan to turn the ship around, you might be wondering. By spending big, on the best talent the Premier League has to offer.

The Daily Mail reports that Madrid will splurge up to £500 million to complete a hat trick of blockbuster signings. Eden Hazard tops Florentino Perez's wanted list -- with the club president prepared to break the official world transfer record by bidding £200m -- while David De Gea and Harry Kane complete the stellar lineup of reinforcements.

And who will lead this new team of Galacticos? Well, the Mail also claims that Mauricio Pochettino is being lined up to replace Zinedine Zidane in the hot seat, having impressed the Madrid hierarchy with his reign at Tottenham.

The report states that the Spanish giants have made contact with Pochettino's representatives, but Daniel Levy is bound to put up a fight to keep the Argentine at Spurs.
