GdS: Optimism growing as Milan and Inter continue stadium project – latest developments

By Isak Möller -

Good news in what can only be described as a worldwide crisis. AC Milan and Inter continue to work hard on the new stadium project, despite a thousand difficulties, getting closer and closer to an agreement. 

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com), the main talking point between the clubs and the city council remains the size of the district and the area surrounding the stadium. Now, the parties are much closer on the matter.

In such a time of difficulty for the city, still having investors that are ready to invest €1.2bn is a very positive sign. This is something that the clubs have pointed out several times and continue to do.

The project has gained a general consensus at the city council, as the improved plans will keep a piece of the San Siro stadium. Now, however, the parties are working on the numbers, as Milan and Inter are studying the volumes requested by the council.

Cement will be reused from the current stadium, according to the newspaper, and May could be decisive for the long-awaited green light. San Siro, therefore, will not be completely dismantled as first thought, reusing it for commercial purposes.

Shops, restaurants, cinemas and much more will get space inside the renovated San Siro. By the looks of it, the parties are getting closer and closer to each other, after the project previously seemed doomed.
