Real Madrid have continued work on their development of the Bernabeu over the dark winter months, including the development of a four-floor car park.
The club have not played at the stadium since the coronavirus outbreak back in March and have taken the opportunity to press ahead with plans to modernise the 81,000 capacity ground.
Currently, the first team have been playing their matches at the club’s reserve ground, the Alfredo Di Stefano.
In a video nearly eight minutes long posted on their social media channels , the club showed off its latest developments being undertaken through the winter months.
Most notable among them was the four-floor car park, which the club state will be double height to allow for trucks and buses to pass through.
The video also shows structural work being carried out on top of the ground including the roof which when complete has the ability to be closed for any events held at the stadium.

Real Madrid have continued strengthening the stadium’s roof structure in recent weeks
A giant metal structure consisting of two trusses or fastened beams that run from east to west had already been erected as part of the roof construction and will rest on the two new towers on the Castellana back in the early autumn.
Other features set to be present in the new finished design will include a 360-degree video screen and a new seating section.
Additionally the refurbishment of private boxes is already underway. At a cost of around £500million, work is expected to be completed in October 2022.

‘We are facing one of the great projects of the future for Real Madrid, and, of course, it will be also for the city of Madrid,’ club president Florentino Pérez said back in April when the plans were unveiled.
‘The new Santiago Bernabeu stadium will entail an important improvement for the club, but also for its surroundings.
‘The new stadium will allow us to keep growing. It will allow Real Madrid to remain competitive in an increasingly difficult scenario in international football.’
