Real Madrid Have Promised Zinedine Zidane £300Million Transfer Kitty

Real Madrid decided to appoint former player Zinedine Zidane as their new boss on Monday afternoon, just ten months after the Frenchman opted to leave the club following a third consecutive Champions League title win.

Santiago Solari was given the boot after a number of questionable results, including a disastrous defeat to Ajax in the Champions League knockout stages, and Zidane has been given the opportunity to continue his incredible record at Los Blancos.

In addition to his appointment, it is believed that president Florentino Perez has handed the new manager a huge transfer budget of £300 million to improve the current team - a kitty that could be used to bring in a Galactico for the first time since 2014.

The Independent have named four players who could move to the Bernabeu, but can you see any of these names moving?

Neymar has been a long-term target, while his teammate Kylian Mbappe is also name dropped in the piece. Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen also features, while Chelsea's Eden Hazard is perhaps the most likely candidate to make the switch.

In the past, Hazard has made it clear that a move to Madrid is his dream:

"Real Madrid are the best club in the world. I don't want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club." he said back in October.

"We will see. I don't want to talk about this every day, I don't have time. But we will talk about my future soon."

The Belgian has also made it known of his admiration for new manager Zinedine Zidane, so who knows what the next transfer window could bring.

Hazard's teammate N'Golo Kante has also been linked with a move to Los Blancos since Zidane took over.

La Gazzetta dello Sport's Nicolò Schira believes that he wants Chelsea's defensive midfielder to be his first signing in his second stint in charge.

Who do you predict will move to Real Madrid in the coming months?
