Florentino Perez has been the architect behind Real Madrid’s unprecedented success over the past decade and a half.

Serving as the Real Madrid president between 2000 to 2006 and then from 2009, Perez’s leadership has seen Los Blancos win numerous accolades, including multiple Champions League titles.

Perez has also been the mastermind behind Real Madrid’s capture of various iconic players including Cristiano Ronaldo and now Kylian Mbappe.

Perez to run for elections in 2025

Despite his unprecedented success, there were doubts over Florentino Perez’s continuation as Real Madrid president beyond 2025, primarily due to his age and health issues.

However, according to Jorge Picon, Florentino Perez has no plans to retire just yet and is expected to run for the 2025 Real Madrid elections.

The report cites people in the know, stating that Perez has not ruled out running for the presidency again. If he wins in 2025, he will remain as the Real Madrid president for four more years, though that will serve as the end of his mandate.

As mentioned earlier, age and physical ailments led many to believe that Perez may not continue beyond 2025. But the 77-year-old has moved past these issues and has indicated privately that he will be able to run for another term in office.

Florentino Perez’s remaining goals at Real Madrid

The report also details some of Florentino Perez’s remaining goals that he wishes to achieve if he wins the next term.

One of them is to bring the World Cup finals to Santiago Bernabeu. Perez also wishes to complete the stadium’s renovation works before he retires.

Completion of Bernabeu’s renovation could lead to another of Perez’s goals, which is to increase revenue from the stadium.

In addition, the Real Madrid president wants to expand the training ground and facilities, which are already one of the best in the world.

Finally, Florentino Perez wishes to achieve in his endeavour to kickstart the European Super League – a project that has received very little support from peers.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Jesus Vallejo held a meeting with Real Madrid’s hierarchy

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
