The name of the next president of Spanish Giants Real Madrid is yet to be known but Florentino Perez already stands as the hot favorite to take win the position.
The former Galactico President is keen to revolutionize Real and his policies look very much different from Ramon Calderonâ€™s.
Perez has set his priority on rebuilding the squad with a technical body which will be headed by Jorge Valdano and Superstar Zinedine Zidane, should he be elected as Real Madridâ€™s president.
This decision by Florentino Perez somehow explains that he might drop the Ronaldo hunt â€“ which his long-time foe Calderon started â€“ as he is aiming to get rid of El Supremoâ€™s administrative strategy that seems to have led the club into disorder.
The former Real Madrid President amazingly succeeded to lure another Portuguese, Luis Figo, from rivals Barcelona back in 2000 â€“ which helped him to win the elections at that time. This time though, he rather wants to focus on a genuine Real Madrid revolution consisting in reinforcing the team in the rightful way.
Florentino Perez may prefer to have a balanced team with every player in it being responsibly competent instead of building a squad around 1 or 2 foreign stars whom others will rely on.
On the other hand, itâ€™s true that Real Madrid will be looking on bringing on the right person(s) to the club that may help them to achieve the Champions League trophy â€“ a competition from which they recently crashed out with a humiliating 5-0 loss to Liverpool on aggregate.
Perez will want to make the right choice when the transfer market opens next summer. Madrid are reportedly looking to sign one megastar, and with Florentino Perez explaining to the media his discontentment over all the noise and uncertainty that the Ronaldo saga caused, rumors point AC Milanâ€™s Kaka as Realâ€™s target.
One more thing which makes it more improbable that Cristiano Ronaldo will join Real Madrid in the summer is the fact that Los Blancos seem so keen to sign Milanâ€™s recently disappointed ace Kaka and that obviously, Madrid would chose one big star player to buy instead of thinking about landing two as the price of their wages added to their transfer tag will be astronomically exorbitant.
The long-term future of Ronaldo is unknown, but what happens next season looks definite: Ronaldo will stay at Old Trafford.
