ICYMI: Bernabeu renovations will require extra €370m loan
Real Madrid’s board of directors will ask club members to approve a new €370million (£322m, $391m) loan to cover further spending in their Santiago Bernabeu renovation, with the redevelopment of the stadium now set to cost the club at least €1.4bn.
Madrid’s board has outlined plans to do so in a document sent to members before a general assembly to be held on Saturday, 11 November.
The document says the club would like to borrow more money because of “price revisions” and “unforeseen works” as well as to cover “improvements and complementary facilities” on the project to redevelop its iconic ground.

Greenwood ‘conscious and talking’ after head injury in England loss
England defender Alex Greenwood is “conscious and talking” after sustaining a head injury during England’s 3-2 Women’s Nations League loss against Belgium.
Greenwood, 30, went down after a collision with Belgium’s Jassina Blom in the 19th minute of the match at Den Dreef in Leuven. Team doctors from both sides were quickly on to attend to both players, with Blom sitting up shortly after the incident.
While Greenwood received treatment, team-mates Lucy Bronze, Keira Walsh and Millie Bright remained by the Manchester City player’s side in support. She was treated on the pitch for approximately 10 minutes before being taken off on a stretcher to be replaced by Jess Carter. Blom played on with a bandage on her head until she was later withdrawn in the 74th minute.
At half-time, the official England account confirmed on Twitter: “Alex Greenwood is conscious and talking, and is being monitored by our medical staff.”
