AC Milan president Scaroni confirms plans to build new San Siro

By Oliver Fisher -

Club president Paolo Scaroni has seemingly confirmed that AC Milan’s intention is to construct a new stadium next to the current San Siro.

Recent reports have suggested that Milan and Inter, together with the city council, are actively seeking for a solution on the stadium issue.

Both clubs are aware that San Siro is ageing and that the costs of bringing it up to the standard of other modern stadia will not be cheap, and so the possibility of building a new stadium next to the current on is being touted.

There is also a lucrative case for building a new stadium from a revenue point of view, something Juventus have found out since leaving the Stadio Olimpico in Turin for the Allianz Stadium.

Now, Scaroni has all but confirmed the Rossoneri’s plan to accelerate the new ground development.

“We will build a new San Siro next to the new one in the same area,” he told ANSA.

“The old one will be demolished and there will be new constructions in its place.”
