CorMilano: Stalemate between Milan, Inter and Council over new stadium

By Oliver Fisher -

Another meeting is set to take place between AC Milan, Inter and the City Council to discuss the new stadium issue, a report claims.

Both clubs have made their desires known to build a new state-of-the-art modern stadium and move out of the current 93-year-old structure.

Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous are the two competing firms trying to land the project, and they showed their respective ‘Wedding ring’ and ‘Cathedral’ designs at an official event in September.

Now, Monday’s edition of il Corriere di Milano – as cited by MilanNews.it – is claiming that the parties are still very far from an agreement and another round of talks is set to take place.

The major sticking point at the moment is the current stadium: the Council have no intention of demolishing the Meazza and wish for it to remain standing for other sports or music events. 

For Milan and Inter, they have now asked their designers to work on a new masterplan that included the idea of two stadiums side by side, something which obviously is not ideal.

We are therefore in a stalemate at the moment and it is very difficult to imagine any progress in negotiations before the end of 2019, the paper adds.

In the background there are the ideas of constructing a new stadium in Sesto San Giovanni, San Donato or even another area.
