Sala rushes Milan and Inter amid San Donato referendum – the latest stadium news

By Oliver Fisher -

At present, the news seems to have split into two fronts regarding the stadium project as Mayor Beppe Sala continues to try persuade AC Milan and Inter to stay while each club explore building their own new home in different areas.

According to what is being reported this morning by Corriere della Sera (the Milanese edition, via Radio Rossonera), the mayor of the city Beppe Sala wants to speed up the decision from Inter and Milan regarding the future of San Siro.

Sala has thus scheduled a meeting for the weekend with the two clubs and with WeBuild, the company that are studying the feasibility of the renovation plan of the San Siro itself. It is a €300m+ plan, which we explained in detail in a feature.

During this first ‘formal meeting’ – as it is defined by the paper – between the Council, AC Milan , Inter and WeBuild, the parties will have the opportunity to present their wishes, starting from the possibility of being able to play with fans there even during the works to minimise disruption.

On the other front, a press release confirmed that the Council of San Donato have begun the mandatory feasibility check on the referendum proposed by the ‘No Stadium Committee’ who are against Milan building a new stadium there.

These are the words of the mayor Francesco Squeri in the press release: “We entrust the technicians with the task of verifying the feasibility of the referendum proposed by the ‘No Stadium Committee’.

“In the meantime, we are proceeding with the identification of the candidatures to be submitted to the City Council for the establishment of the Board of Guarantors who, if necessary, will express their opinion on admissibility.” News is expected in the next few days.
