Mbappe and Haaland in, Bernabeu upgraded, £172m turnover increase and Ramos gone – how Perez wants to revolutionise Real
FLORENTINO PEREZ has a grand plan to revolutionise Real Madrid and make them Europe's kings once again.
The club president will keep his seat until 2025 and has ambitious plans including signing Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
Reports in Spain say that snapping up the two hottest properties in Europe is Perez's main objective after the election.
Mbappe is locked in contract talks with current side PSG but Real are confident of landing him in the summer.
But Dortmund striker Haaland might have to wait until 2022 with the German club wanting £150m for his services.
Bayern Munich defender David Alaba, meanwhile, has verbally agreed to join Los Blancos in the summer on a free.
Zinedine Zidane will stay on as manager after leading Real to two La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues.
One man set to leave the Bernabeu, however, is captain Sergio Ramos.
The 35-year-old has won five La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues in his glittering Real Madrid career dating back to 2005 when he joined from Sevilla.

Perez also hopes Real Madrid's stadium refurbishments can generate more revenue.
The Bernabeu improvements could bring in an extra £170m annually through ticket sales, hospitality packages and also concerts outside of football.
Real Madrid have been playing at their 6,000-seat training ground since the coronavirus pandemic began with the Bernabeu under redevelopment.
Finances are a key part of Perez's Real Madrid outlook after the hit caused by Covid.
This year they face a loss of around £60million and the club have asked staff to take a ten per cent pay cut.
Players will also be asked to reduce their wages as the club navigates it's way back to a healthy financial position.
And one idea that Real Madrid have been leading the charge for is a European Super League.
Perez has been a leading voice in the calls for a new Euro elite league.
