Real Madrid have enjoyed decades of dominance and completed monumental comebacks at the Santiago Bernabeu, the club’s home stadium since 1947.

The iconic venue has served as a breeding ground for historic moments over the years, with the club aiming to emulate its past glories following the renovations.

It will even be availed to host major events like the NFL or concerts as the reformed stadium is shaping up to be an architectural marvel.

Real Madrid hope to increase revenue by organizing additional athletic events as a result of the installation of retractable roof and turf.

While merely the finishing touches remain on the stadium’s construction, Real Madrid anticipate that construction on their redesigned Santiago Bernabeu stadium will not be finished until spring.

Inauguration day delayed

As per Mario Cortegana, via The Athletic, Real Madrid have delayed the new Santiago Bernbaéu’s inauguration day until the end of the season.

The report states that the long-awaited inauguration of the new Santiago Bernabéu is expected to take place in May or early June.

Real Madrid anticipate that the stadium-related work will be completed in March or April. However, a precise completion date is difficult to determine because other off-site projects, such as the construction of a new Metro station and stadium parking structures, are ongoing at the same time.

The essential requirements were supposed to be finished by the end of 2023. An inauguration ceremony was originally scheduled for December, but this has since been postponed.

Nonetheless, having begun this project back in 2019, the day the stadium’s renovations are fully wrapped up edges closer and closer.

Real Madrid are just days away from their highly anticipated Champions League final showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Once the final has been played, planning for the summer transfer window will be in full swing, with the topic of arrivals and departures likely to be discussed.

One of the players facing an uncertain future is Nacho Fernandez. The Real Madrid captain has yet to disclose his future ambitions, despite nearing the end of his contract.

Nacho opens up about future

While he previously claimed that he had already made his decision, a shift in tone can be observed now, with Nacho asserting that he will soon sit with the club and his family to evaluate the best course of action

For now, the 34-year-old remains focused on the Champions League final and does not wish to draw any unnecessary attention.

“Future? The focus is on the final now. After that, I will sit with the club, Ancelotti and my family and I’ll decide what’s the best thing for me,” he told El Chiringuito.

Fernandez acknowledges the fans’ support

Additionally, the veteran centre-back claimed that he does need a grand farewell to know how much the Madrid faithful appreciate him.

“That love the fans have for Toni is the same they have for me. I don’t need a farewell to know the fans love me,” he reflected.

Nacho has devoted his entire career to Real Madrid, rising through the ranks from the youth academy and spending over two decades with the Merengues.

However, he has alluded to the possibility of perhaps donning the colours of a different jersey.

“Sometimes the circumstances are not right to be a ‘one club man’,” he cryptically claimed.
