Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is reportedly so unhappy with the club’s start to the season that he is planning a £180million January spending spree.

Real, who were beaten 1-0 at home by Real Betis last night, currently sit seven points behind La Liga leaders with just five games played in Spain.

That situation has set alarm bells ringing for Perez and, according to Don Balon, they claim Perez has allocated £180million to spend on two new players in the next transfer window.

Zinedine Zidane added defender Theo Hernandez and midfielder Dani Ceballos to the squad in the summer for a combined fee of €46.5million, but Perez wants to add some more star qualiuty to the squad.

The article claims Perez wants to sign one attacker and one defender with forwards Antoine Griezmann, Paulo Dybala and Timo Werner all in their sights.

On the defensive front Perez is understood to have Bayern Munich defender David Alaba and Athletic Bilbao centre-back Aymeric Laporte on his shortlist.
