Perez calls RM election

Real Madrid have confirmed club presidential elections this summer, although it appears unlikely anyone will rival incumbent Florentino Perez.

The 70-year-old has spent a total of 14 years at the Bernabeu over two spells in his position and there appears to be no potential challengers to his premiership at the club to hold a vote.

Re-elected unopposed in 2013, the president is confident his position has been strengthened further following three Champions League crowns in four years alongside this season’s La Liga title.

Any contender to Perez’s throne must have been a socio at the club for over two decades and posses a ‘personal guarantee of €75m’ from a Spanish bank.

The perceived lack of democracy has led to criticism of the club’s presidential elections in recent years.
