Florentino Perez, President of the Spanish record champions Real Madrid, commented on the hotly debated personalities of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappe and Sergio Ramos. In an interview with The Chiringuito de Jugones he kept a low profile on this for the most part, but ruled out a return from CR7.
Of the return of Portuguese superstar Ronaldo, Perez said: “No. He has a contract with Juventus. It no longer makes sense. I like him a lot, he gave us a lot, but it doesn’t make sense.” In recent weeks, after Juve’s elimination from the Champions League, there have been rumors that the long-time Real player will return.
In an almost cryptic manner, Perez did not want to know anything about an agreement with PSG striker Mbappe, which is considered likely due to his sluggish contract negotiations in Paris: “Keep calm. He’s a good player. Real Madrid also need a change. I am speaking about that now not explicitly from Mbappe, but we have gained a lot and we have to move things that regain hope. It is not easy. The world has to change constantly. “
Instead, the 74-year-old said cautiously: “I don’t know whether Mbappe doesn’t want to renew at PSG. I didn’t speak to him – at least today. I don’t know more than what I read in the newspapers. And what’s there is not always true. “
Perez was rather pessimistic about Ramos
When asked about captain Sergio Ramos, Perez became even pessimistic: “I like him a lot, but we are in a very bad situation. We have to be realistic. We still have time to clarify, but at the moment we are all very bad – Madrid too. I’m not saying that he won’t stay. At the moment we’re looking at how we end the season. ” Ramos has been linked to a transfer repeatedly over the past few months.
The president of the royal club currently has a clear idea of what could fix the club’s financial problems, aggravated by the corona crisis: On Sunday, he presented himself as the chairman of a newly founded Super League, through which the top teams in Europe benefit from significantly higher television money should.
