The Santiago Bernabeu is no doubt an asset for Real Madrid, not just culturally but also financially, as the stadium is responsible for bringing in a fortune every season.

But the club is now ready to take things a step further, following the remarkable renovations at the stadium which has seen the incorporation of a retractable roof and retractable grass.

A recent report from Jorge Picon has added more details on the matter, suggesting that Real Madrid could be earning €400 million from the renewed Santiago Bernabeu each season, once the project is fully completed and operational.

This is according to Real Madrid’s estimate, and it is quite obvious that the club are serious about the project, which is why they are ready to invest big.

Real Madrid approach NFL, NBA

Keeping their aspirations to make Santiago Bernabeu not just a footballing but a sporting cathedral, Real Madrid have approached the NFL and NBA to host matches.

They have sought out the possibility of hosting American football and basketball matches, perhaps as soon as next year.

Apart from the potential NFL and NBA matches, Los Blancos have already planned several concerts at their new-look stadium for next year, with Taylor Swift among those booked.

Real Madrid’s plan is to seek out the full potential of the Bernabeu and utilise it 365 days, rather than just once or twice a week for football matches.

However, before the Spanish giants go ahead with their aspirations, they have their task cut out as they hope to iron out any flaws with the collection and storage systems for the grass that are in place.

As per Picon, a series of tests will begin shortly. Each process will be analysed meticulously and improved upon so that there are no issues or glitches.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
