Milan and Inter respond to latest new stadium speculation and ask for timeframe guarantees

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter have now issues their response to the ongoing speculation that the new stadium project has stalled, hinting at frustration over how drawn out the process has become.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported this morning the project for the new stadium at San Siro has stalled again and now Milan and Inter are looking around at potential new locations without as much bureaucracy involved.

The most likely area if they did decide to move away is the Sesto San Giovanni area where the Falck steel works used to be. The Rossoneri and the Nerazzurri are willing to accept other compromises because they wish to remain in the San Siro area, but eventually something has to give.

The two clubs have now expressed their opinion on the possibility of building a new home in Milan. Through an ANSA statement (via, Inter and Milan revealed their views on the issue.

“We are continuing a constructive dialogue with the Municipal Administration, according to the procedural procedure, with the preparation of a dossier functional project to start the public debate, in order to accelerate the process of building the new San Siro, within a larger masterplan that includes a redeveloped area dedicated to sport and entertainment,” it began.

Priority to a new stadium

“For both clubs it is therefore an absolute priority to have a new stadium, having certainty about the timing of the authorisation process, remaining open to evaluating other design solutions, should there be no conditions to be able to create the new one. San Siro stadium as hypothesised,” the statement adds.

In recent days the mayor of Milano – Giuseppe Sala – had also expressed himself regarding the stadium issue, expressing a certain tiredness about the constant rumours that Milan and Inter are unhappy.

“The teams confirmed to me a week ago that they are preparing the dossier for the public debate. A week ago, not six months ago. In any case, however, I would like to tell everyone that in this difficult historical moment the Municipal Administration also has much more to think about,” he said.
