Real Madrid's new Santiago Bernabéu is closer every day to reopening to the public. The pandemic has allowed work on the stadium to progress faster than the club had originally anticipated, beginning with the retractable roof which is now at a very advanced stage.

It is hoped that it will be completely finished by late 2022 or early 2023. Madrid have invested 800 million euros in the project which they Madrid believe is fundamental for the club's future.

They will begin paying the loan off in 2023 in instalments of 29.5 million euros per year until 2049.
