There could well be a curveball thrown in AC Milan’s new stadium project as a plan is being prepared which would see San Siro renovated in a bid to keep the clubs there.
The Milanese edition of La Repubblica (via PianetaMilan) talks about the possible new plan to convince both Milan and Inter to stay at the San Siro, starting with the fact that the council will try everything to ensure that the two teams remain in the city.
On January 31st, we read, a renovation project for San Siro will be presented which will cost €300m and which would not force the two teams to find a new place to play during the time in which the works are ongoing.
It is a proposal which was signed by the Arco Associati studio and which was presented to Mayor Sala by the opposition. It includes a 75,000-seater stadium, thus ensuring the capacity remains fairly consistent.
The access methods would also change with the entrance to the stadium and the surrounding area which would be modified to be greener and more accessible.
As mentioned, this appears to be a pressure tactic to get the Rossoneri and Nerazzurri to pump the brakes on their plans to build new homes outside the council’s realm of influence.
As a reminder, Milan’s plan is to build in San Donato which is in the south-east of the city, and we gave an update on our Substack late last year.
