Sole 24 Ore: Milan to San Donato, Inter to Rozzano – San Siro farewell evident

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan and Inter have given up on building a stadium together in the San Siro area amidst the unwillingness of the city council. In fact, both clubs have now seemingly decided where their respective new home will be. 

The San Siro project was first announced several years ago, more specifically in 2019, but the clubs encountered several legal issues along the way. Furthermore, the unwillingness of the city council to help out made the matter impossible, in the end.

As reported by Il Sole 24 Ore, Milan have bought the rights for the SportLifeCity project in San Donato and Inter have been granted exclusive right to evaluate the Rozzano area. In short, both are keen to get on with the stadium project separately.

Therefore, San Siro farewell has more or less been confirmed and it comes as no surprise given that the iconic stadium should be hit with a historic constraint next year, which would make a demolition illegal.

We have written about the San Donato area extensively on our Substack (the first one in April, the second one in June and the third one earlier this month).

  1. this has come as a good news, san siro is gradually becoming a thing of the past and hopefully the projects commence in the shortest possible of time – selling top players will lessen.

  2. Whilst I don’t envy the owners having to deal with the bureaucracy, this really should’ve been our priority rather than playing Football Manager..

    Hopefully we can get it sorted soon.

  3. If Inter somehow get the San Siro area for themselves, RedBird will damage our history forever.
    We will let our rivals take our home.
    Never leave San Siro before Inter!

    1. Inter will also make a new stadium. The longer we are stuck in San siro despite its history and traditions we are losing out on 100 million.

    2. You want ACM renting san siro forever? Do you really believe city council will sell san siro to IM? City council only want both Milan club renting san siro forever

      1. I don’t want us renting San Siro forever, no. But I’m not as certain of the councils stubbornness as you. I believe access can be bought and I also believe that the right stadium design can sway a lot of peoples opinions. I think a major part of the resistance has to do with the design of the project presented.

    3. I do see where you’re coming from.

      And moving stadium didn’t work for Arsenal.

      It barely worked for Juve who mostly benefited from other teams around them being mismanaged (even as they were being mismanaged, just less so).

      I do think we need to find a sustainable model particularly to fund our transfers addiction….

  4. Good news for both teams if they start building it.
    A little strange for Milan to want the new stadium area to be opposite side the Milanello Sport Center from the city.
