AC Milan are examining the possibility of building a new stadium rather than renovating San Siro once again, a report claims.
Milan and Inter will face each other on March 17 at San Siro – but could it be one of the last instalments of the Derby della Madonnina at the historic stadium?
Monday’s edition of La Repubblica claims that the Rossoneri “has fully embraced the idea of building a new stadium” and that San Siro faces an uncertain future – with the Milan clubs possibly teaming up to build a ‘new San Siro’.
AC Milan are prepared to make a €600million investment to build a new stadium, the same amount spent by Real Madrid to redo the Bernabeu.
To finance part of the costs, the club will sell the naming rights of the new stadium at a rate of €25m/year.
In recent days, a delegation of the two clubs travelled to the US and visited some ultra-modern stadiums, such as the Mercedes Benz in Atlanta and the MetLife in New York.
The new Milan stadium will be covered, will have 60,000 seats, and a separate entrance for the two teams.
While the new San Siro is being built, the teams will continue to play in the old. Inter and Milan will also transfer museums and other artefacts of interest to the new stadium, which should be completed by 2023.
