The New Galactico era

Florintino Perez gets a new mandate being the new Real Madrid president, and now they are back at it again with their 2 record signings. First signing Kaka away for 68m euros ($94.05m or £58.9m) from AC Milan, then breaking the bank for Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United for £80m. They hired Manuel Pellegrini to replace former Tottenham manager Juande Ramos.

They have not been dominant as of late (that is FC Barcelona), and as such, they went back to Perez, who was in charge of the Galacticos era of Madrid.

Perez has been quoted as saying he is looking at 5 or 6 signings for the upcoming season. Among those rumored are David Villa (Valencia striker), Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich) and Xabi Alonso.

Given how much money Madrid has with its global marketing and merchandising, they can withstand the possible signings.

You can expect a quick response from Barcelona anytime now.
