    after finally reaching an agreement with the city to remodel the stadium.Madrid
    president Florentino Perez said Tuesday the project will cost 400 million euros
    ($447 million) and construction is expected to start next year.The revamped
    venue, which will also carry a new facade, is expected to be fully completed by
    2020.We will see a dramatic transformation of the Santiago Bernabeu, Perez said.
    This stadium is one of the emblematic icons of our city and we want to make it
    one of the best stadiums in the world and the undisputed symbol of the strength
    of our capital.Madrid had tried to remodel its famed venue for several times but
    earlier projects were turned down by the city and court decisions.The new deal
    was announced at an event with Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena.With this agreement
    we will start a process of modernization and transformation that will convert
    the stadium into an avant-garde architectural icon, Perez said. This stadium
    will act as an economic and touristic invigorator and will contribute to
    strengthening the image of our city.The venue originally inaugurated in 1947
    will maintain its capacity of more than 80,000, although the seating sections
    may be redesigned. One of the stadiums most notable features, the four corner
    access towers, will be covered by the new facade.Perez said the Santiago
    Bernabeu will maintain its name, but it may gain a surname from a sponsor like
    at stadiums everywhere in the world.Abu Dhabi investment fund International
    Petroleum Investment Company is helping finance the renovation.Because of the
    agreement with the city, Madrid wont be allowed to increase the total size of
    the structures already in place, so it will have to rearrange the current
    constructions to be able to remodel the venue. Some office spaces will be
    transferred to the teams base in Ciudad Real Madrid, in the citys outskirts.The
    clubs initial plan was to build a hotel and a shopping center along with the
    remodeled stadium, something that had prompted fierce opposition across the
    city. The club will still be able to use the new space commercially, but not how
    it originally planned.Officials praised the fact that one of the stadiums
    parking lots will be transformed into a large public area, and that the new roof
    will help reduce noise in the neighborhood.This deal happened to promote the
    modernization project of the stadium and to improve and urban environment around
    our beloved Bernabeu, Carmena said.The Bernabeu stands in the middle of the
    high-end neighborhood of Chamartin.In March, rival Barcelona announced its own
    remodeling project for the Camp Nou, increasing capacity from 99,354 to 105,000
    after construction is fully finished in about five years. The stadium will also
    have a new roof covering all seating sections.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: His work can be found at

    injury keep him from carrying the Toronto Raptors.DeRozan shook it off and
    scored 40 points, outdueling John Wall in a showcase of All-Star guards as the
    Raptors beat the winless Washington Wizards 113-103 on Wednesday night. Despite
    leaving the game briefly to get his ankles re-taped, DeRozan was 14 of 23 from
    the floor and cracked the 30-point mark for the fourth time in four games to
    start the season.Hes playing on another level right now, said backcourt mate
    Kyle Lowry, who scored 18. Hes making my life a lot easier and making I think
    everybody on our teams life a lot easier. Hes saving possessions, hes creating
    possessions. Hes creating offense.DeRozan tied Mike James 2005 franchise record
    with four consecutive 30-point games after previously dropping 40, 32 and 33 in
    games against Detroit, Cleveland and Denver. He said he didnt care about Sports
    Illustrated ranking him the 46th-best player in the NBA but tries to improve
    each night.Im just a student of the game, DeRozan said. I just try and put
    everything together, be a student of the game while working, always feeling like
    Im new to the game so I can soak up as much as possible. I try to release it
    once I get out there on the court.DeRozan released enough that the Raptors (3-1)
    withstood a dominant performance from Wall, who scored 33 points in 13 of 19
    shooting and dished out 11 assists. Otto Porter also shot 11 of 13 and had 23
    points for the Wizards (0-3), who committed 21 turnovers that turned into 30
    Toronto points.Thats hard to overcome, Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. Theres a
    few things that we have to correct.A CUT BELOWLowry needed three stitches to
    close a cut below his right eye. Coach Dwane Casey knnew DeRozans ankle was OK
    but was concerned because he didnt know how bad Lowrys cut was.dddddddddddde
    bounced back, Casey said. Hed be probably a pretty good hockey player if thats
    the case. He came back. I thought that got his attention a little bit to say,
    `Hey this is for real tonight.BENCH BOSSESWhen DeRozan and Lowry were out early
    in the second quarter, the Raptors climbed back into the game thanks to a big
    showing from reserves Terrence Ross, Patrick Patterson and Cory Joseph. Torontos
    bench combined for 34 points to Washingtons 11.They played great, DeRozan said.
    They got us the momentum back.MUST-WIN?Center Marcin Gortat called this a must
    win for the Wizards at the morning shootaround, an ultimatum that didnt make
    much sense three games into a season.Were all right, were fine, just three
    games, Wall said. I dont know why he said its a must win. You want to win a home
    opener, yeah, but its not a must win.TIP-INSRaptors: Toronto has won eight
    consecutive regular-season meetings and 11 of the past 12. ... DeRozan tied Jose
    Calderon for the second-most games played in Raptors with his 525th. Hes 18 away
    from tying Morris Peterson for first.Wizards: The Wizards fell to 0-3 for the
    fourth time in six seasons. ... Rookie Tomas Satoransky checked in late in the
    third quarter after playing just 6 minutes in the first two games. He finished
