thumbnail Hello,

Real Madrid's presidential elections in the summer are set to bring major changes to the club. and sporting director Predrag Mijatovic believes he will have to leave.

Predrag Mijatovic believes that he will not be staying on at Real Madrid under a new board following presidential elections in the summer, but is keen to guide the team to the title this term.

Los Merengues' sporting director does not expect the next president, whoever it may be, to offer him a role and thinks that he will see the first game of next season on television at home.

The oft-criticised Mijatovic hopes to step down in a blaze of glory though, and is keen to see Madrid win the title for the third year running.

"It is only my impression, but I see myself being at home," Marca quote him as saying. "My main desire now is to see the team win a third consecutive league title."

Juande Ramos' time at the club is also in question with many rumours about a new coach being installed in the summer, but Mijatovic does not know what will happen.

"He is working well. We gave him a six-month contract, but with a clause that if he wins a trophy then his contract will automatically be renewed for one year," he continued.

"Unfortunately, he only has the league left, but if he wins that then the clause will be activated.

"Nobody can fail to know that there are elections and that the newcomer will have to work things out with Juande if he wants to keep him," he added.

Reflecting on the decision to loan Julien Faubert from West Ham United, the Madrid director stated that it was the best option at the time.

"We need to strengthen the right-sided midfield position and we looked at various players and decided that he was the best available," Mijatovic added.

"He is on loan until the end of the season with a view to buy and we will have to see what happens in the next couple of months."
