GdS: Milan willing to ditch new stadium plans with Inter as bureaucratic delays persist

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are happy to go it alone with their new stadium project if they are unable to make the new San Siro plans come to fruition.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) begin a report by recalling how Milan and Inter would like to build a new state of the art home next to the current San Siro, which would subsequently be demolished. The project was launched in 2019 and the Cathedral design by the Populous studio was chosen, and yet the delays continue.

Yesterday, Paolo Scaroni – the President of Milan – suggested that the Rossoneri are running out of patience, so much so that he confirmed the possibility of moving to a new site and even building without Inter.

“If it’s not at San Siro, Milan will do it by ourselves. We won’t give up, I assure you that Milan will have the new stadium,” Scaroni said.

“We’re carrying out three projects in parallel. There is San Siro, another is that of Sesto San Giovanni and another I won’t say, it’s a wild card. The first one that is unlocked we will throw ourselves at.”

The Cathedral project seems to have got bogged down in the typical Italian folds of bureaucracy and is stuck between the new requests of the Council of Milano to the clubs plus a potential architectural constraint on the current San Siro.

If Milan were to ditch the plan with Inter, the Nerazzurri would not stay at the Meazza either as Steven Zhang’s club would be ready to plan and build a all-Nerazzurri facility.

Where would Milan build their new stadium? The Sesto San Giovanni hypothesis is well known, and the third plan Scaroni talks about could be the San Francesco area of ​​San Donato – not far from Rogoredo.
