AC Milan and Inter are still battling with the city council over the construction of a new stadium in the San Siro area. With that proving to be very difficult, the clubs are also looking at other potential areas.
This was reported by Corriere Della Sera (via MilanNews) a few days back, stating that the clubs are also looking at the following areas: Sesto San Giovanni, San Donato and Segrate. All of which are located close to the city centre, but not under the city council’s jurisdiction.
We decided to take a look at the three areas in our newsletter earlier this week (subscribe here) and what the current transportation situation is to each of them.
➤ Sesto San Giovanni: This area is located about 20 minutes away from the city centre, connected with the Duomo by the underground metro line 1. In other words, it’s very close to the city and this is an aspect that Milan and Inter obviously have to prioritise.
➤ San Donato: This area is located about 15 minutes away from the city centre, connected with the Duomo by underground metro line 3. Once again, we have used the Duomo as a reference point just to make it a bit easier. It’s also quite close to Linate Airport, which might come in handy.
➤ Segrate: This area is currently not reachable with the underground metro, but there are plans to extend Line 4 (soon to be opened) which currently stops at Linate. If that ends up happening, the travel time should be similar to the others.
The priority, of course, remains to convince the council to sanction the project for the San Siro area. If that ends up taking too long, though, nothing should be ruled out.
