London, Apr 16(ANI): Spanish football giants Real Madrid are reportedly plotting to bag England striker Wayne Rooney and manager Fabio Capello.

According to reports, Madrid will make a staggering 150 million pound bid for Rooney, offering Manchester United 90 million pounds and the player 250,000 pounds-a-week for five years.

The 24-year-old is in the form of his life with 34 goals this season, and Madrid will tempt him with the 60 million pound deal, matching former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo's wage structure.

The club is also determined to get back former manager Capello after the World Cup.apello had managed Madrid twice before (in 1996-1997 and 2006-2007), winning La Liga on both occasions.

Despite Capello being contracted to England until 2012, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has shown previously that he is not bothered by the contracts, The Sun reports.

Perez is driven by the thought of restoring Rooney's devastating partnership with Ronaldo under the leadership Capello brings. (ANI)
