Real Madrid will be led by Florentino Perez for another four years, with no other candidates running against him in the club’s presidential elections.
The deadline for candidacies to be presented was midnight on Sunday night and, for the third elections in a row, Perez has won uncontested.
17 years after he first assumed the presidency in 2000, and eight years since his return in 2009 after a three-year hiatus, the 70-year-old is as determined as ever to bring glory to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
He has overseen one of the most prestigious periods in the club’s history, with three Champions Leagues won in four seasons, but he’ll be hungry for more success and could kick off his new term by renewing the contract of Zinedine Zidane, the man who led the team to the last two of those European titles.
Perez could also make a statement in the transfer market, as he has become defined over the years by his Galactico signings.
Kylian Mbappe would certainly fall into that category and his arrival would ensure this new term gets off to a great start.
