Perez comments suggest no Real Madrid stars will be leaving this summer

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has suggested he's more than happy with the current squad.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has given a glowing report of Carlo Ancelotti’s current side with a simple message.

“You are the best team of my entire life, since I was president for the first time in 2000,” he’s quoted by Spanish website Marca.

The comments suggest that Real Madrid’s chief is happy with the current squad, potentially looking to only add this summer instead of seeing a string of stars leaving the Bernabeu.

Several Real Madrid players have been linked with Premier League moves and several English sides could be impacted if Perez is keen on keeping Ancelotti’s, potentially Champions League winning, squad together.

Arsenal are one of the big sides affected with a well publicised interest in striker Karim Benzema.

Benzema has played a big part in guiding Real Madrid into the Champions League final and domestically, with Los Blancos harbouring an outside chance of winning La Liga.

Angel Di Maria has also been linked with a move to Arsenal as well as Manchester United.

He was booed by Real Madrid fans throughout the first part of the season but has turned opinions around with match winning performances, with a staggering 15 assists in league games this season.

Chelsea are also affected by the comments, which suggest Perez would be keen to keep the squad together.

Chelsea have also been linked with Benzema but more so with Real Madrid’s best young defender Raphael Varane, who Jose Mourinho has previously described as the best young defender in the world.

Then there is Isco, linked with a Stamford Bridge move just a year after signing.

Isco stands a great chance of replacing Xabi Alonso in the champions League final later this month after the former Liverpool man was suspended when he picked up a yellow card against Bayern Munich.

With reports suggesting that Real Madrid are going after big money signings like Liverpool’s Luis Suarez this summer, there will be plenty hoping that Perez doesn’t get in the way of top quality players leaving, admired by several sides.
