Perez closing in on third mandate

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is closing in on a third mandate until 2021, with no candidate having declared his intention to challenge him in the election two days before today’s deadline.

Perez, who began his second spell as Real president in 2009, has barely had to contend with any rivals for his position since the club approved changes to internal rules for presidential candidates in 2012.

The alterations meant anyone aspiring to be president had to have been a member of Real for at least 20 years compared to the old requisite of 10, and have a personal guarantee of over 75 million euros from a Spanish bank.

The barriers saw off potential challengers in the last election in 2013 while this time no candidate has even spoken of the possibility of taking on Perez.
