Real Madrid release video of stunning plans for new £470m Bernabeu redevelopment

Real Madrid have released footage of their plans to redevelop the Bernabeu with a £470million makeover.

The Spanish giants originally unveiled the plans to transform their stadium four years ago, but the bid hit the buffers.

However, that vision now looks set to become a reality and Florentino Perez presented the plans to a club members’ assembly.

The new-look stadium will not increase its 80,000 capacity but it will feature a retractable roof.

“Our plan was approved for the stadium in May 2017 and it is definitive which gives us free rein over the construction,” said Perez.

“We now have to tender the works and approve the financing proposal.

“We hope that work can start at the beginning of next year and it is estimated that it will take three-and-a-half years to complete.

“The cost was to be €400 million but the modification of the project to comply with new obligations from the Madrid Court of Justice ruling has led to an increase to €525m.”
