Perez to remain as Real Madrid president until 2021

19 June 2017

Real Madrid's President Florentino Perez arrives to a news conference at Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain, November 23, 2015.

If, as expected, no candidate presents a bid before Sunday's deadline, Perez will be confirmed on Monday as president until 2021, further cementing his rock solid position as head of the European and Spanish champions.

Perez in his fifth spell has been at the helm of the Spanish capital club since 2009 and overseen three European titles added to the trophy cabinet during this period.

Madrid also confirmed the make-up of the club's board of directors.

Florentino Perez is set to continue as Real Madrid president for another four years.

However, despite signing some of the world's finest players, results on the pitch weren't satisfactory and - despite massive increases in marketing revenue - Perez resigned in 2006, conceding that the club would benefit from a new direction.

Perez employed six managers during his first spell, as Real won two La Liga titles and the Champions League.

Perez was not away for long, though, and returned in 2009, immediately making his mark on the club again by signing Kaka and pushing through the deal for Cristiano Ronaldo agreed by previous president Ramon Calderon.

Madrid have gone from strength to strength in recent years and last season became the first club to retain the Champions League crown, as well as winning LaLiga for the first time since 2012.
