Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has pledged to bring in two or three ”high class” signings next summer that he assures will excite the imagination of the club’s fans.
Madrid were unable to capture their number one transfer target last summer when their pursuit of Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo ended in failure, but Calderon is confident it will be a different story during the next close season.
”There will be two or three important players, who will excite the fans. We will not have any problems presenting them in June,” Calderon was quoted as telling Radio Marca.
Calderon has failed with his transfer targets before, having previously said he would bring Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas and Milan playmaker Kaka to the club.
The Spanish champions have been strongly linked with a number of top class strikers, as Ruud Van Nistelrooy recovers from knee surgery, but the club refused to name and any specific targets.
Calderon also offered his backing for coach, Bernd Schuster, who has been criticised for being uncommunicative and withdrawn around his players.
“In front of the media, Bernd is timid and apathetic. But around those he is close to, he is very warm and he is a great person,” he added.
“We have a good group of players and a great coach. The present and future project of Madrid revolves around Bernd Schuster,” concluded Calderón.
