MADRID Jan 9 (Reuters) - Spanish builder FCC plans to replace Executive Chairman Baldomero Falcones with the head of its Cementos Portland subsidiary, Juan Bejar, Expansion reported on Wednesday without naming sources.

Bejar, former chief executive officer of Spanish infrastructure firm Cintra, is also currently executive chairman of Globalvia, an infrastructure joint venture between FCC and property firm Realia.

FCC declined to comment.

The builder, whose net profit dropped 77 percent to 40 million euros ($52 million) in the nine months to September, cancelled dividend payments last month as it continues to suffer from a sharp construction downturn in Spain.
