Real Madrid is on the holiday. It is that after two seasons in which he lost the Spanish league to his classic rival, Lionel Messi's Barcelona Football Club, the return of Zinedine Zidane reconstructed the winning spirit that had led the French-led team to win three consecutive editions of the Champions League and the last local title.

Thus, after dedicating himself as champion of La Liga playing the time of local in the Alfredo di Stéfano stadium, located in the sports city of Valdebebas, an venue that he used in the face of the impossibility of public, the institution presided over by Florentino Pérez took advantage to continue with the works in the Santiago Bernabéu thee began almost a year ago. 

In a new stage of the remodels that would extend until october 2022, began with the tasks of installation of the impressive retractable roof that will have the enclosure and that will be part of a futuristic structure that will mark the new facade that will have the stadium located in the heart of the Spanish capital.

Last April, Real Madrid released a video showing how the new roof will be applied and a demonstration of what will be the inside of the court once the million-dollar work is completed. "For many more unforgettable moments at home... The Santiago Bernabéu of the future", was the text that accompanied the multimedia archive that uploaded the Merengue on social networks.

Although the renovation of the stadium was paralyzed for a few weeks by the peak of contagion that made Madrid one of the epicentres of the coronavirus pandemic that affected Spain between March and April, the facade of the stadium has already changed. The same thing happened with the interior of the enclosure: ae the playing field was removed, as did the lower grandstand on the west side that overlooks paseo de la Castellana, in which all the seats were removed. 

In this area of the court is where it began to dig a cave more than 30 meters deep to accommodate another of the modifications that will have the new version of the Bernabéu: the retractable lawn. Through a system used in other lavish stadiums - several of the new ones built in the United States - it will be removed after the encounters to be housed in a kind of greenhouse, with the exact conditions of light and humidity so that it can be kept in good condition and without being exposed to inclement weather or damaged by alternative uses.

The works at the Santiago Bernabéu do not stop. With a work that will cost a total cost, with the payment of interest, of approximately $869 million, and waiting for Zidane's set to step foot on the pitch again, now the goal of the football team will be set to turn the playoff against Manchester City in England and join the historic definition that will be starring in the Champions League in Portugal.
