Atlético Madrid offer to let Real Madrid play final LaLiga games at the Wanda
Atlético president Enrique Cerezo was asked about the possibility of Real Madrid using their stadium while work continues on the Bernabéu.
LaLiga and Madrid city council presented the “#VolverEsGanar” and “#VolveremosSiTuVuelves” initiatives in Puerta del Sol this morning, just a few hours before the remaining 45 minutes of Rayo's meeting with Albacete was played.
Joining Madrid mayor José Luis Martínez-Almeida and vice-mayor, Begoña Villacís were LaLiga president Javier Tebas, Atlético Madrid president Enrique Cerezo, and Real Madrid's Director of Institutional Relations Emilio Butragueño.
Cerezo surprised everyone when asked about the possibility that Real Madrid could play their final home games at the Wanda Metropolitano, seeing as the Santiago Bernabéu is currently undergoing a major makeover: "I'm going to take my mask off to reply to that," Cerezo said. "I think nobody is in any doubt that we at at the disposal of Real Madrid, that's for sure". Martínez Almeida noted that Real Madrid did play the Atleti's old Vicente Calderón stadium many years back - in March 1994, against Rayo.
Real Madrid have six LaLiga games left to play this season and the plan is to play them at the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium at their training ground in Valdebebas.
