Milan and Inter are very keen on replacing the Guiseppe Meazza with a new stadium, convinced that it will help both the city and the clubs revenue-wise. After all, the Guiseppe Meazza is quite dated albeit charming.
The two clubs have been in talks with the city council for a very long time now, having presented the project renderings almost two years ago now. There is still no agreement as the council wants to keep San Siro.
As a result of the slow talks, some alternative solutions have been mentioned throughout the course of the project, one of which being Sesto San Giovanni. The idea was to leave the San Siro area completely and build the stadium there instead.
However, that hypothesis is no longer possible for Milan and Inter as the CEO of MilanoSesto confirmed in an interview with Il Sole 24 Ore (via MilanLive). They have moved on with their project and no longer have room for a stadium.
“That project is abandoned, we are now in a new phase. It was an interesting element for us to reflect on, but then Inter and Milan made other choices and so did we,” Giuseppe Bonomi stated.
