AC Milan have decided – along with rivals Inter – to construct a new San Siro, according to the latest reports.
La Repubblica stated in March (via SportsProMedia) that the idea of building a new, smaller stadium next to the current one is being considered as a potential option for both clubs.
Milan president Paolo Scaroni then seemingly confirmed that the plan is to construct a new development in an interview with ANSA, as opposed to the expensive option of renovating the current San Siro.

According to il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews.it), Milan and Inter have decided to build a new stadium together.
In addition, the newspaper claims that the project is essentially being bid for by four firms: two American and two from Milan.
In the coming weeks, the two clubs will meet and choose the best design and attach it to the masterplan, which will then be presented to the Milan mayor Beppe Sala.
Sala recently requested clarity from both Milan and Inter regarding the stadium situation in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, and it appears like it might be arriving soon.
