Corriere dello Sport says the mega warchest will be split with £25 million available in January and £45 million to be spent at the end of the season.

Top of the shopping list for the winter market are Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro and Barcelona fullback Gianluca Zambrotta.

For the summer market, among the names in the frame are Valencia midfielder David Albelda, Lyon's Kim Kallstrom and Palermo ace Amauri.
