Perez: Real Madrid will be active until deadline day

Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez signings are already in the bag, but the Blancos chief suggested that further transfer movement will be afoot in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed that the club could be active in the transfer window all the way until deadline day.

The Champions League holder has already confirmed the arrivals of World Cup stars Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez from Bayern Munich and Monaco respectively, while a transfer for Levante and Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas is expected to be confirmed soon.

With the Spanish transfer window set to run until September 1, Madrid has just over five weeks to make more additions and Perez has suggested that the club would not be afraid to wait until late in the window to do transfer dealings.

"Until the last day you can always do something, whether it's buying and selling," the club chief told reporters at a Spanish football association (RFEF) assembly. "It’s important that this season develops normally and calmly for us. As always, like everyone, we started with great enthusiasm last year.

"We all want to strengthen and improve. Then the competition will unfold. You can add people until the end of August and some can go out as well. It’s no different to any summer. I can’t say anything else, honestly."

Real Madrid kicks off its competitive 2014-15 season with the Supercopa de Espana against Atletico Madrid (the home leg is on August 19 and the away leg on August 22) before playing its first Liga game at home to Cordoba the following weekend.
