The stadium saga involving AC Milan and Inter continues to generate speculation and a new hypothesis has recently emerged, according to a report.
According to Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), the idea of carrying out the current Cathedral project next to the current San Siro seems to be losing momentum, as does the idea of Milan and Inter building a new home together.
The Nerazzurri are going through a tough moment from a corporate point of view as Steven Zhang apparently looking for a new buyer, which means the club cannot push too much on the stadium issue given the expenses that would be incurred.
For this reason, Milan owner Gerry Cardinale and the rest of the leadership have been evaluating alternative sites such as Sesto San Giovanni, San Donato and the area of the La Maura racecourse for some time.
Now the idea of building a new state of the art home on their own cannot be excluded and is in fact gathering steam. It would have higher costs of course, but €150m would be saved by not demolishing the current San Siro and not building the underpass necessary in the original plan.
That is because Inter would remain at San Siro in this scenario, restoring it and renegotiating the conditions with the Council of Milan. There are no certainties at the moment, but logic suggests things could go this way.
From one side we need our own, new stadium.
From other side, to leave our great San Siro to merda is quite hurtful.
It’s a tough one
This is a great plan. Build a new home for Milan to move into the future of football, and leave Inter to live in the past. Make no mistake, the most important piece of the project that is needed for Milan to return to competing with the top clubs in Europe is a new stadium.
