La Liga club Real Madrid has unveiled an extraordinary design to renovate its iconic Santiago Bernabeu stadium that would make it the best in the world. The exquisite plan has been designated to German architect GMP who would attempt to complete the work sometime around 2017.

The club already has a huge fanbase and boasts some of the best players in the world in its lineup including Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. Only Premier League team Manchester United earned more in stadium match-day revenue than Madrid last season, and with its ambitious new plan the Spanish club aims to become the highest earner in the world in this category.

Massive sponsorship deals and huge popularity across the globe drive home a glut of income into the club’s coffins which in turn provides it with the necessary power to spend lavishly on the best talent on the planet. A historic appeal and a feeling of greatness that comes with playing for the club add to its allure, and the management hopes to cash in on this by increasing the seating capacity and attracting more fans to matches.

While the team currently lie only a point behind leaders Barcelona and second placed Atletico Madrid, they have an excellent chance to claim the title this season along with the Copa Del Rey.

A retractable roof and a giant screen on the eastern facade are other highlights of this spectacular project aimed at providing an awesome feel for the crowd. Madrid has taken a positive step towards revamping their historic stadium, and the new-age design is a step in the right direction for one of the most famous football clubs in the world.
