Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed plans to redevelop the Santiago Bernabeu, a move which will cost 340 million.
Despite splashing out on world-record signing Gareth Bale for just short of the 100 million mark, Perez has claimed the club are ready to spend another 340 million in an attempt to improve the club’s legendary home stadium.
Perez said: “The redevelopment will cost between 300m and 400m.”
“The winning project will be awarded in the next few weeks.”
The Bernabeu which currently holds over 85,000 fans is now set to be upgraded further; as yet no figures of seat numbers have been revealed.
The report suggests that Perez is keen to ensure all fans are seated under a roof which could indicate as well as more seats being added; a roof could also be part of the development, although I would think this would be very unlikely.
Madrid’s home ground is third in the list of the largest stadiums in Europe, just behind the Nou Camp and Wembley.
