MADRID (Reuters) - Real Madrid's planned stadium renovation will provide fresh sources of income for the club, president Florentino Perez said on Tuesday at the unveiling of designs for a revamped Santiago Bernabeu.

The facelift is expected to be completed by 2023 and will cost an estimated 525 million euros, although it will not lead to an increase in capacity on the current 81,000 spectators.
