The possibility of AC Milan building a new stadium without Inter continues to gain momentum and the idea that the Nerazzurri could do the same seems like wishful thinking on their part, a journalist has claimed.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com) reported over the weekend that Inter have been working in great secrecy for some time to detach themselves from the Rossoneri and build a stadium on their own.
The paper even claimed that Inter have picked a location which is top secret and don’t want to risk ruining agreement already signed with the entrepreneur who owns the private land, adding that relations with Milan are now tense.
Pietro Mazzara spoke in his weekly column for MilanNews and addressed some of the news that has been circulating regarding the possibility of Inter building a new stadium on their own, something even Mayor Beppe Sala seems to be puzzled by.
“A stadium alone is an increasingly hot option. It’s hard to believe that Inter could build one of their own given the heavy debts that Zhang has with the lenders to whom he has asked for loans that he hasn’t paid yet,” he said.
“Milan, on the other hand, have an ownership ready to take the step, which would certify the absolute failure of the Council of Milan on the issue, which would add to what happened in Rome with the Giallorossi’s stadium project.
“We’ll see how the next few weeks evolve, but the feeling that Milan will have a home of its own is increasingly strong and galloping.
“It will be necessary to think carefully about two things: capacity (more towards 70,000 than 60,000) and the prices of tickets and season tickets, not making the stadium a place for just a few customers. Because fans must be fans and they must be treated above all as custodians of the faith towards Milan.”
