Florentino Perez was automatically re-elected as president of Real Madrid. He was the only candidate who applied to participate in the elections. Earlier, businessman Enrique Riquelme said that he wants to participate in the presidential elections in Real Madrid. But Florentino postponed the elections to April, and Riquelme refused to participate. According to Enrique, Perez deliberately changed the date of the elections, and he did not have time to prepare. If the elections took place in the summer, then Enrique Riquelme would compete with Perez. He wanted to buy Haaland and appoint Klopp, he didn’t like Zidane’s style of play.
Florentino Perez will run the club until 2025. Soon, Real Madrid officially announced the extension of Florentino Perez’s term as president of the club.
Florentino Perez has led Real Madrid for the past 12 years. He was also president of the club from 2000 to 2006. After that, Ramon Calderon became the president of the club for several years. In 2009, Perez won the elections again and became the head of Real Madrid.
Perez’s new projects
AS writes that he is preparing several large projects.
The first project is the reconstruction of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium, which has already begun. The renovated stadium will bring the club about 200 million euros annually. The arena will be modern, so even side events will be held at the Santiago Bernabeu, which will increase revenue.
Perez also wants to update the squad and buy the best footballers in the world. The priority goals of Real are Mbappe and Haaland. Real Madrid will try to buy Mbappe this summer, and the Norwegian’s transfer will take place in 2022. But the financial crisis is hampering Perez’s plans. Due to a lack of funds, the president asked the club’s employees and players to cut salaries by 10%. Some agree, some don’t. Luka Modric accepted Perez’s offer, but Sergio Ramos refused to lower his salary.
