Raúl will return to the Bernabéu next June, according to radio programme ‘El Transistor’. The former captain’s return will be in a role close to the club President, Florentino Pérez.
Although the position is not clearly defined, he will follow in the footsteps of Zinedine Zidane, who started his second period at the club in the same position and is now the leader of the first team.
Raul will shortly be in Madrid to close the agreement with Florentino Perez.
A visible head of LaLiga in North America, an entity with which he had an important contract in economic terms, Raul will resign his position in order to head back to the Spanish capital.
This wasn’t Perez’s first attempt to persuade his former player either, but on previous occasions the offer was always rejected because the striker did not see the ideal moment for a return.
Now the circumstances have changed and after periods in Germany, Qatar and the United States, he will go home.
His first task will be to advise the president but until the end of the season he will continue as a LaLiga worker and as a beIN Sport commentator.
In fact, he will be at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu next April 23 for El Clasico.
