Milan aim to present San Donato project next month while Council scramble over San Siro

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are continuing with their plans to build a new state of the art stadium in the San Donato area of the city, and there have been some updates.

After the Superintendence’s decision to protect the second tier of San Siro – which therefore cannot be demolished – thus definitively ends the joint project involving Milan and Inter to build a new home next to the existing structure.

As reported by Il Cittadino (via MilanNews), in the next month the Milan leaders should present their project to the Council of San Donato and thus to the whole city.

In recent weeks, the Rossoneri have already taken an important first formal step by acquiring over 90% of the shares of Sportlifecity, i.e. the company that owns the land on which they wants to build the new facility.

Now the Rossoneri will have to present all the papers relating to the project which will then be evaluated by the various competent offices of the Council of San Donato.

Meanwhile, the issue of the future of San Siro continues to arouse debate. Despite the constraint and the now concrete possibility that Milan and Inter will go and build their stadiums outside the Lombard capital, the Council does not want to give up and hopes to convince at least one of the two teams to stay.

One hypothesis could be that of giving the green light to the Rossoneri or Nerazzurri to build another facility near San Siro, which will be kept in place in part, re-purposing the second tier.

This was reported by the Milanese edition of La Repubblica, which adds that convincing Milan will be very complex given that they are concretely moving to go to San Donato alone, but the Nerazzurri might find it harder to do so with their financial issues.
