It’s no secret that AC Milan and Inter want to build a new stadium next to the San Siro. For months, in fact, the two clubs have been dealing with the city council on the matter, keen on reaching an agreement.
However, the negotiations have been far from easy for the clubs, who have been forced to make changes to their plans several times. By the looks of it, though, they are getting closer to an agreement on the future use of San Siro.
In today’s football world, it’s very important to have your own stadium. With modern facilities, the opportunities for revenue are many and can be of great importance to a club’s budget, which is what Milan and Inter are aiming for.
Speaking to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), the Rossoneri CEO Ivan Gazidis highlighted the importance of the stadium project that both clubs have presented to the city council.
“We must have our own modern facility. I love San Siro, it’s part of my football mythology, so I understand and respect the affection for the history of this magnificent stadium.
“However, I also have respect for the growth and development of AC Milan and its next generations of fans. A new facility is essential for a great AC Milan.
“If we manage to do it in the San Siro area, in addition to the commercial activities, it will have a green area where all sports can be done.
“It will be another step forward in the development of this city that looks to the future. But it will also serve Italian football,” he stated.
