After Iker Casillas' move to Porto in July 2015, Casillas' agent, Santos Márquez, criticized Pérez, "He doesn't like black players, but is not a racist," and that is why players like Claude Makélélé and Samuel Eto'o weren't paid as much as other players


During the 2014 summer transfer window, Pérez brought in 2014 FIFA World Cup stars James Rodríguez, Toni Kroos, and Keylor Navas to Real Madrid for a combined cost of £95 million, as well as Javier Hernández on a loan deal from Manchester United


On 2 June 2013, Pérez was awarded a fourth term as the Real Madrid president, bringing in Carlo Ancelotti to replace Mourinho


However, the club's lack of success in European competition and a disappointing 2012–13 season encouraged Mourinho to depart for his former club Chelsea


This squad enjoyed its share of domestic success in 2011 and 2012, with the club bringing home a Copa del Rey title and the Spanish League


During the next three years, Pérez brought a lot of new faces to the team, including the German wonderkid Mesut Özil, and Ángel Di María, who both attracted attention from Europe's elite football clubs during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa


On 5 August 2009, Real Madrid confirmed the signing of Xabi Alonso from Liverpool for £30 million; Alonso became the second Liverpool player to join Real Madrid in the same transfer window after full-back Álvaro Arbeloa's £3


He announced his resignation on 27 February 2006, acknowledging that the team and the club as a whole needed a new direction


" From the 2003–04 season onward, with the absence of del Bosque and Makélélé, Real Madrid failed to win a trophy


He was followed by Ronaldo in 2002, David Beckham in 2003, Michael Owen in 2004 and Robinho for a short while in 2005


In 2001, Zinedine Zidane was signed from Juventus for a then-world record transfer fee of €73


His second attempt was more successful; he took over as president in 2000, beating the current chairman at that time, Lorenzo Sanz


Sanz assumed that the recently won European Cups in 1998 and 2000 would give him enough credit to win the elections, but Pérez's campaign, once again highlighting the financial problems of the club and claims of mismanagement by the previous boards, proved otherwise


(ACS) in 1997, he became president of the new company


Florentino Pérez first ran for the presidency of Real Madrid in the 19 February 1995 election


In 1993, he was named vice president of OCP Construcciones


In 1986, Pérez ran in the Spanish general elections as candidate for the Partido Reformista Democrático (Democratic Reform Party)


Pérez joined the Union of the Democratic Centre party in 1979, serving among others on the Madrid city council
