The sale of Real Mallorca to the consortium headed by Llorenç Serra Ferrer has been completed. Serra Ferrer has taken 65% of the shares whilst Miguel Angel and Rafael Nadal took 10%. The remaining shares were divided up amongst different board members.
Josep Pons will be the new president, replacing Miquel Vaquer who was at the club temporarily. Rafael Nadal was offered the role of vice president, which he rejected. The role instead will be split between Serra Ferrer and Jaume Cladera.
With the board comes more news. Dudu Aouate has agreed in principal a two year contract extension. The Israeli goalkeeper has signalled his intentions of finishing his career on the island. Midfielder Pep Marti, who has been removed from squad lists, is still waiting for a new contract. And Fernando Varela missed training to travel to Turkey where he is in talks with another club. Rumour has it that Pierre Webo will be following him up there.
