AC Milan and Inter are once again considering the idea of moving the site of their new stadium after more requests were made to change their plans.
La Repubblica (via MilanNews) write that the public debate process finished and now a number of requests have arrived from all over the city after the meetings with various departments. The Council are asking the two clubs for some fairly substantial adjustments to the feasibility plan presented during the debate.
For example, they have asked for increase in greenery compared to what is already foreseen in the master plan, plus carbon neutrality of the operation to bring everything into line with the air-climate plan and therefore the environmental sustainability of both the demolition of the current San Siro and the construction of its replacement.
Then there is another very important request, namely the relocation of the stadium, because they have asked that the clubs build the facility as far away as possible from the houses facing Via Tesio.
What will Milan and Inter do in the face of these requests? The Rossoneri and Nerazzurri are in a hurry to have a new stadium and don’t intend to spend €40m euros to prepare the executive project if they don’t first have the certainty that the operation will go through.
For this reason, the two clubs (especially Milan) are keeping alternative plans alive such as the former Falck steelworks area in Sesto San Giovanni or even San Donato, an area 13 miles south east of the city centre.
