Real Madrid are reportedly ready to annoy their eternal rivals FC Barcelona and bid R1.2 billion for one of the Blaugrana's targets.

Los Blancos are apparently keen to lure Ousmane Dembele to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Spanish TV station La Sexta has suggested that Real president Florentino Perez is ready to pay €80 million (R1.2 billion) for the Borussia Dortmund winger, who was close to joining the Camp Nou club last season.

Real could reportedly offer to loan Dembele back to Dortmund for the upcoming campaign, although the 20-year-old is also understood to be one of Barca's targets should Neymar leave for Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian's move could have a massive knock-on effect in the transfer market, with Barca likely to have €222 million (R3.3 billion) to spend as a result.

However, Los Blancos, whose primary target in this window is said to be Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, want to make sure they are not losing out on other key players and would therefore be keen to beat their rivals to Dembele's signature.

The Frenchman scored 10 goals and assisted another 21 strikes in 49 appearances for BVB last season.
