ANSA: Cardinale contacted Inter’s Zhang over reigniting joint stadium project

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan owner Gerry Cardinale called his Inter counterpart Steven Zhang to reopen the possibility of building a new stadium together, according to a report.

According to the latest from ANSA (via MilanNews), in recent weeks there have been two contacts between Milan and Inter regarding the new stadium after the ‘new San Siro project’ was abandoned despite the Council’s attempts to save the situation.

They claim that Cardinale called Zhang – Inter’s number one – in mid-January and asked him to potentially reconsider the idea of ​​a joint project on the stadium front, with the idea of ​​aiming for San Donato together.

The second discussion occurred at the beginning of February, with a meeting at the Inter headquarters at the beginning of February after a meeting that the Rossoneri and Nerazzurri directors had also had with those of Juventus regarding the proposal for an 18-team Serie A.

At the end of the meeting, the situation pertaining to the construction of a new stadium in San Donato was talked about but Inter do not seem interested.

Instead, they are intent on building their own new stadium in the Rozzano district of the city, and thus seem to have showed little willingness to collaborate.

  1. Sharing stadium/costs also means sharing revenue & profits.

    That also means, non-Milan related events (when they rent it out for other purposes) ACM would only take half of the profit there too.

    I thought Cardinale was a “financial corporate genius” (his words, not mine). Impressed less and less by this guy every single time he speaks or takes a decision.

  2. American big gun, who rejected idea of shared stadium is now asking the Chinese to reconsider the idea. And got rejected. You’re putting us in shame dry Gerry. Just give PIF the club and be gone.

  3. I don’t put any stock in this. I don’t quite understand inter’s financial situation and how they are going to repay OakTree. I wonder if they have to sell in the summer…
