MADRID - Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told television channel Cuatro that two more signings will be enough.

Perez, a 62 year-old billionaire, has taken world football by storm with the most profligate spending spree ever seen.

He has already spent around 210 million euros (R2.3 billion) on Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Raul Albiol and the spending spree is not yet over.

Perez is determined to build a team capable of ending the domestic and European domination of Barcelona.

Asked if the spending made sense he said great players produce the most income but admitted the challenge was now to convince some players to leave. Perez declined to identify his next targets or to talk about French winger Franck Ribery.
