Florentino won't rule out Real Madrid raiding Barcelona for stars

Real Madrid presidential hopeful Florentino Perez won't rule out raiding Barcelona for players. At yesterday's presentation, Perez was asked if the 'non-aggression' pact between the two clubs still stood: "Barca is having a superb season. Each player, when you sign a contract, includes a clause that allows them to leave if it is paid. We can talk about it when the elections are decided."

Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi have both been linked with Perez's Real plans since the New Year.

El Mundo Deportivo says Kaka (AC Milan), Xabi Alonso (Liverpool), David Villa and David Silva (both Valencia) are all priority targets for Perez, with Inter Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic also under consideration should any of his top four fail to join.
