REAL MADRID are eyeing a major squad overhaul this summer, creating a new Galacticos-worthy squad.
Having won just ONE LaLiga title since 2011-12, missing out at the hands of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, Los Blancos are itching to get back on top.
Florentino Perez admitted he is willing to splash the cash in a bid to recreate another Galacticos team.
And it will all start with the front-three, with Real Madrid struggling since the BBC trio – Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo – broke up.
That means bringing in arguably the top two forwards in world football right now, in Mbappe and Haaland.
Haaland has 41 goals this season in all competitions which is three more than current Real Madrid stars Benzema, Hazard, Bale and Vinicius Jr combined (38).
Mbappe, meanwhile, has netted 90 goals in just 120 games for PSG in all competitions – and has held off signing a new contract in the French capital.
The World Cup winner's current deal runs out at the end of the 2021-22 season.
And Real Madrid may have to break the world-record transfer fee to sign him this summer, with PSG insisting they'd rather lose him for nothing than sell him.
As well as boosting his attacking ranks to devastating effect, Zidane is keen on compatriot Paul Pogba to bolster his midfield.
With Luka Modric now 34-years-old, there's room for another playmaker in the new forward-thinking Real.
And Pogba could be just the man to sit alongside Toni Kroos in the middle of the park, with Casemiro providing support.
The Manchester United star has been pushing for a move away from Old Trafford since last summer when he revealed he wanted a "new challenge".
Despite staying in England, Pogba has struggled with injuries and for form in 2019-20 and now looks almost certain to quit the club.
Federico Valverde could provide back-up to that trio, with the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Bale and Marco Asensio also only good enough for the bench.
In defence it could well be business as usual, with Thibaut Courtois between the sticks, keeping Alphonse Areola out of the team.
The tried-and-tested back-four of Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Marcelo will be kept as long as humanly possible and is therefore unlikely to be changed for 2020-21.
