Atlético Madrid have offered the Wanda Metropolitano to Rayo Majadahonda until January as they embark on their first journey in the Segunda.

The club from Madrid play at Atlético’s Cerro del Espino in Majadahonda — los rojiblancos’ reserves play there. The ground is not fit, however, to host second division games and they need an alternative.

Miguel Ángel Gil Marín has made the Wanda Metropolitano available to the side at a cost of €25,000 per game, which given broadcast rights, is very reasonable.

The Community of Madrid is home to six professional grounds including A Stadium Called Wanda: Santiago Bernabéu, Coliseum Alfonso Pérez (Getafe), Estadio de Vallecas (Rayo Vallecano), Butarque (Leganés) and Santo Domingo (Alcorcón). Madrid will have a whopping five teams in LaLiga next season, meaning several of these stadiums will be in use next season.
