Madrid hope to introduce Ancelotti on June 3

Florentino Perez has had a busy summer already acting as the re-elected president of Real Madrid, but he’ll be officially announced in that office Sunday, June 2. Perez will hope to make an equally big announcement the following Monday.

Carlo Ancelotti has been linked with the recently vacated Real Madrid coaching position, but it is believed that Florentino Perez has moved to make it a reality. Club brass and players alike at PSG had lamented and fought against his departure, but reports are that Ancelotti and Madrid have come to an agreement.

Perez also hopes to introduce football great Zinedine Zidane as part of an executive managerial position. The Real Madrid president has lauded the former players influence inside the club, calling him a great “asset” to the team. Perez hopes to replicate this summer the great achievements he accomplished in 2009, when he spent over €250 million to secure a troupe of players, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka.
