Florentino Perez Considering Various Landmark Club Statutes Reforms At Real Madrid

Written by Olaleye Oluwadamilola

Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid has a lengthy history with the team and has made significant changes to it during his two terms in leadership. Although it was initially believed that the reconstruction of the Santiago Bernabeu was his final major legacy project, there are reports that he is thinking of making a much bigger improvement before he departs.

More Details

The 77-year-old patriarch is looking into ways to improve the club’s financial and legal standing as he prepares to run for at least one more term in office. Perez believes Real Madrid should be in charge of its finances, which is why he views UEFA’s actions which include obstructing the Superleague and the selling of 11% of La Liga’s TV rights for 50 years as hostile acts.

Furthermore, there are now more worries that Los Blancos could end up in “the wrong hands” due to the surge in state ownership of Premier League teams alongside billionaires. Perez calls this a concern. According to El Confidencial, Perez is considering two options.

One would entail giving members more rights, modernizing the club’s structure, and guaranteeing that the club will always be owned by the club. The specifics of this would entail turning the club into a private company, with the members acting as its shareholders.

Meanwhile…

The second would involve a significant change in Spanish football. Real Madrid’s possible IPO is one of the options that Perez has been considering with investment banking firm Key Capital Partners and law firm Clifford Chance. Perez’s goals are known to banker John Hahn and JP Morgan as well. The second alternative would ultimately entail obtaining member approval to sell up to 49.9% of the club, but with a cap on the amount that may be sold there in order to maintain member control.

Selecting the latter would imply giving over a sizable portion of the club to self-interested investors rather than members, which would represent a significant change in the club’s ownership structure even though it could put them in legal unfamiliar terrain. In theory, each member of the club has an equal voice in its future, but allowing outside investors would put a stop to that, even though members would still have the last word on important choices.
