Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane are planning a massive spending spree, as respected journalist Guillem Balague has revealed their 5-man shortlist for the summer.
Los Blancos, who are not too far away from landing the La Liga title after more than four years, are currently one of the many clubs who are planning to spend big in the upcoming transfer window.
They also have a decent chance of winning the Champions League with the current squad in hand, but Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid manager, is convinced that his side needs a few additions to continue this progress next season.
They are being linked with moves for some of the best players in Europe, and Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has now revealed the five names that are definitely going to be on the wish list for the Spanish club this summer.

The tweet suggests that Real Madrid will be looking at the likes of Kylian Mbappe, David De Gea, Antoine Griezmann, Robert Lewandowski, and Paulo Dybala. However, they are only expected to sign two of the five aforementioned superstars.
Mbappe has been in tremendous form for AS Monaco this season, and could jump at a chance of playing at the Bernabeu. However, Real might have to break the transfer record to land him this summer.
They might have to do the same if they are to land any of the three strikers in Robert Lewandowski, Antoine Griezmann, and Paulo Dybala. The Bayern Munich man and the Juventus starlet are currently settled at their clubs, but Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann may be on the move at the end of the season.
David De Gea, however, seems to be inching closer to a move to Spain by the day.
Do you think Real will be able to sign two or more of these stars this summer?
