Real Madrid president took to El Chiringuito TV to give a revealing interview about Real Madrid transfer business.
On why Madrid did not sign Erling Haaland this summer, Perez said: “We have the best 9 in the world and we weren’t going to bring Haaland to have him on the bench, right?"
Asked about the rumoured clause that brings Haaland to Madrid in two years, Perez replied: "I don’t know. Now we have no more interest than forming the new team with the youngsters we have and some reinforcements”.
Los Blancos were strongly linked with a move for Haaland but abandoned the chase, with Benzema scoring goals relentlessly last season.
