Real MadridReal Madrid is desperate to beat their rivals FC Barcelona next season and as a result the club is preparing to make a big splash in the free agent market.

Florentino Perez is prepared to spend a lot on the club’s basketball section this summer and has given head coach Ettore Messina the go ahead to pursue the players he wants.

The main targets of the club this summer are:

Sergio Rodriguez, Vassilis Spanoulis, Milos Teodosic, Alan Anderson, Mike Batiste, and Tiago Splitter. The club is particularly interested in Vassilis Spanoulis and Tiago Splitter.

The club is said to be willing to spend up to 8-10 million euros net on each player in order to secure both Spanoulis and Splitter, because the club believes this would allow them to win the ACB and Euroleague championships next season.
