Madrid press: The Special End


The two main Madrid newspapers put their focus on the announcement by Florentino Perez that Jose Mourinho will not continue at the club at the end of the season and he will call for elections.

“The Special End”, titles Marca. “Florentino closes the Mou Era and calls elections for June 16th”, they say.

“He said it was better for him to leave and I share that opinion”, reports As. The Madrid daily also emphasizes Perez’s words: “He’s brought Real back to the place where it belongs. I understand the level of pressure has been above normal”.

As also reports the latest statements by the Paris Saint Germain owner about Carlo Ancelotti. According to the Spanish paper, Nasser Al-Khelaifi said: “I’ve been told Ancelotti has a pre-contract with Real Madrid”.

“PSG counter-attacks”, claims Marca. “The French club accepts to negotiate for Ancelotti if Real studies their offers for Di Maria, Coentrao or Pepe”.

Marca also speaks about what they call “The Neymar Labyrinth”. “Santos considers Barcelona’s offer is insufficient and will listen to others, including Real Madrid”, they maintain.
