Mayor Beppe Sala confirms San Siro could be sold to Milan and Inter

By Oliver Fisher -

The mayor of Milano – Beppe Sala – has confirmed that the city council are willing to sell San Siro to make Milan and Inter stay.

Milan president Paolo Scaroni confirmed earlier in the year that the plan is to build a new stadium in an interview with ANSA.

The situation surrounding a potential new stadium is reaching a critical stage, with a recent report on MilanNews confirming that two firms are in the running to manage the project.

Then, a report from the same outlet stated that patience is wearing thin on the part of the clubs as they have threatened to leave the San Siro district altogether and build a new stadium in the north of the city.

Beppe Sala has never hidden his desire for both teams to remain at the current San Siro, and he told ANSA about the three possible scenarios.

“At this point there are two hypotheses on the table: a [new] stadium at San Siro or a stadium in Sesto San Giovanni,” he said.

“I would add a third: we are willing to sell San Siro, if we wanted to consider also the hypothesis of using the existing structure.”
