Perez: I Have A Good Relationship With Alex Ferguson

Real Madrid's relationship with Manchester United has been rebuilt.

Florentino Perez believes that he has mended Real Madrid's relationship with Manchester United and that he has made making friends with English clubs a priority.

Los Merengues' supremo retook the reins at the Bernabeu this summer after a spell which had seen Sir Alex Ferguson slamming the club for their pursuit of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite them selling the Portuguese star to Madrid, the United boss was infuriated by Perez's predecessor Ramon Calderon's approach to the whole transfer.

“Alex Ferguson has only positive things to say about me," Perez told FourFourTwo magazine.

"Our relationship with English clubs is positive. My personal priority is to ensure that relationships between clubs are cordial. Fair play works on and off the pitch.

"Our model sustains itself…[Zinedine] Zidane, for example, was a cheap signing as his arrival allowed new commercial deals and generated revenue.

"I left the club in a sound financial state and on top of European football. I want to put right the damage done over the last three years."
