Subscribe to Oneindia News

London, Apr 17(ANI): Spanish football giants Real Madrid are ready to use their winger Cristiano Ronaldo to lure his former team-mate Wayne Rooney to the Bernabeu.

Madrid is plotting to bag Rooney, and will make a staggering 150 million pound bid in this summer's transfer window.

According to reports, Madrid will offer 90 million pounds to Manchester United and a 60 million pounds five year deal to Rooney.

The 24-year-old is in the form of his life with 34 goals this season, and Madrid believes that Ronaldo could help tempt Rooney to switch, The Sun reports.

The club is also determined to get back former manager Capello after the World Cup.

Capello 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)
