"I am ready to play immediately," said Eduardo Camavinga at the official presentation at the new club Real Madrid.
The young Frenchman offered Carlo Ancelotti to put him in the game against Celta in Sunday's La Liga game. There is every chance that the Italian will grant his request if the match develops according to the expectations of Real fans.
However, Florentino Perez took the opportunity to talk about the return of the "royal team" at the Santiago Bernabeu at the presentation of the new Real Madrid reinforcement. Construction work on the reconstruction of the mythical stadium is still ongoing, but the conditions for playing the matches have been met. The last one was played a year and a half ago against the eternal rival Barcelona, and since then Real has played at the small stadium Alfredo Di Stefano, which is part of Real's training center Valdebebas. Initially, the idea was to play matches in parallel with the renovation of the stadium, but the pandemic crisis forced Real to move to Di Stefano. It didn't make sense to insist on the Bernabeu because the spectators couldn't go to the stands anyway, and in addition, the cost of construction is higher and the pace of work is slower if matches are played at the same time.Bet on Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo with Bet9ja
"We have been through a difficult time of pandemic. On March 1, 2020, we gathered for the last time at our stadium and the excitement is all the greater that football is returning to the Bernabeu, especially after such difficult and strange moments that we went through, "said Perez. The pandemic had a negative impact on football in general in many respects, including Real Madrid, which lost large financial resources and had to cut its budget and cut wages. However, the corona crisis had at least one positive side for Real as the works on the reconstruction of the stadium, which should be completed in December 2022, were significantly accelerated. The capacity of the "Santiago Bernabeu" will remain 81,000 spectators, and the completely new look with a shopping center, hotel, new restaurant and underground garages on five floors will be obtained at the end of 2022. After the complete reconstruction, the field of the stadium should be movable and move when there are no football matches, so it is possible that sometimes the Real basketball club will play its Euroleague matches at the "Santiago Bernabeu", but also to play tennis and other sports competitions.
Real made great efforts to get the fans back to the stands of the famous stadium well before that deadline. on Sunday Celta will play in Madrid in the 4th round of La Liga, and the match will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu. At first, it was expected that 50,000 fans would be able to enter the stands, but the capacity is still quite limited due to the works, so entrance is provided for 30,000 fans. Real asked La Liga to play the first three games of the championship away in order to have enough time to prepare everything for the return to the Bernabeu. The setting of the lawn was completed last week, the Bernabeu is green again.
Real Madrid played first 3 rounds as quest, won 2 and draw one game against Levante. Although the club don’t have any star like it was C. Ronaldo, they are playing well under Ancelotti and for sure will fight for the first place until the end.
Celta Vigo is struggling a lot this season and they will have difficult fight to avoid relegation this season. In the first 3 rounds they only scored 1 goal and won 1 point. It seems that Celta will watch no to get demolished against motivated opponent on new stadium.
