REAL MADRID SET TO RELEASE PLANS

Spanish giants Real Madrid will release plans for the redevelopment of the Santiago Bernabeu in the coming weeks, the club's president Florentino Perez has said.

With the club hoping to increase their matchday revenue, four individual plans for the renovation of their stadium, which opened in 1947, were revealed in October last year.

"I want a stadium that doesn't look like a stadium and is profitable," Perez told reporters.

"The redevelopment will cost between €300million and €400m. The winning project will be awarded in the next few weeks."

It will be the third time that the Bernabeu - Europe's third largest stadium - has been redeveloped.
