Florentino Pérez didn't have an opposition list in the Real Madrid elections and for the sixth time he will command the club's destinies, this time until 2025. That's why we are already beginning to talk about the objectives of the new mandate, with star signings on the agenda. In the field of incorporations, despite the global economic crisis from the pandemic, the goal's very ambitious and the Sport newspaper put two names on the table: Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland. Florentino loves both of them.
Of course, they will not be simple negotiations because they would demand a very important sum of money since they are two of the most outstanding strikers today, still young and with the potential to continue growing. Both, of course, are coveted by other clubs.
According to the same media, if Florentino had to choose one or the other, the chosen one would be Mbappé, who launched the bomb at PSG: according to Deportes Cuatro, the forward reported that he will not renew his contract, which expires in June 2022, and has the intention to leave in the middle of the year.
Florentino Pérez started his sixth term at Real Madrid
Florentino Pérez became almost a synonym for Real Madrid. With the exception of the 2006-2009 period, where Ramón Calderón was in charge, he is the only president who has commanded the institution since the 2000s, and in the last hours he was presented for four more years.
The event took place at the Madrid club's facilities, where an electoral process was not necessary since the other candidate, Enrique Riquelme, decided to withdraw from the nomination at the last minute. The reason was "the unjustified advance of the elections that has prevented him from launching a campaign to explain his project to the partners", as he described in a statement. However, he made it clear that he will appear in the next instance.
The "new" Santiago Bernabéu Stadium
Another aspect that the press indicates as a priority for Florentino is the opening of the "new" stadium. The remodeling works have been underway for several months and the fact that the public is not allowed in the stadiums led to some calm in terms of the demands of the fans. But, true to the style of Pérez, it's speculated that the launch will be with all the luxuries.
