Ral Madrid are plotting a spectacular double swoop for England's crown jewels, Wayne Rooney AND Fabio Capello.

The Spanish giants will make a staggering £150MILLION raid for Rooney, offering Manchester United £90m for their prize asset and the player £250,000 a week for five years.

And they are determined to go back for highly-regarded ex-boss Capello after the World Cup.

Capello has managed Real twice before, winning La Liga on both occasions.

He is tied to England until 2012 but Real president Florentino Perez is no respecter of contracts.

Perez has a record of getting his man - as United will testify, losing David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo to Madrid.

Rooney, 24, and in the form of his life with 34 goals this term, has still not committed to a new contract and has only two years left on his deal.

Real will tempt him with a five-year offer worth £60m, matching Ronaldo and way beyond United's strict wage structure.

Perez is driven by the thought of restoring Rooney's devastating partnership with Ronaldo - under the no-nonsense leadership Capello brings.

Capello has hinted he could leave England when his contract with expires.

The Italian said: "I like new situations. I won't close any door."

And the different tax laws in the two countries means United would have to find an extra 25 per cent on top of anything Real offer Rooney.

In this country he will be taxed at 50 per cent but a move to Spain will cost him just 25 per cent.
