The Mayor of Milan, Beppe Sala, has promised to consider any concrete proposal that arrives from Milan and Inter over a new stadium.
After initial scepticism, the general consensus among the main sources is that there is progress being made between Milan, Inter and the City Council over a new stadium after the Council were apprehensive at first about the potential demolition of San Siro.
Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous are the two competing firms trying to land the project, with both Milanese clubs absolutely intent on constructing a new state of the art stadium. Things have proceeded slowly due to the usual state of bureaucracy in Italy, but it seems the two clubs have been offered some hope.
Sala spoke during the Milano Unita event and was asked once again about the possibility of the two clubs constructing a new home, and he did not rule out a positive conclusion.
“I can only say that, if the teams bring a concrete project, I can’t help but listen to them, but it seems to me that until now I have tried to defend the interests of the community,” he said (via MilanNews).
“Differences of views? This is not new: the sensitivity is not only different between parties but also between citizens. Everyone sees it in their own way.”
