Paolo Scaroni has confirmed that the new stadium plans for AC Milan and Inter are on hold until the financial security of both clubs is confirmed.
In recent months the leadership of both Milan and Inter have stressed on multiple occasions their desire to build a new state of the art stadium near the current San Siro that would be a modern replacement for the existing structure, and in recent weeks the clubs have sent detailed documentation with clarifications on the project to the Council.
However, Tuttosport (via MilanLive) among other sources reported that Inter and their owners Suning are slowing things down as they are looking for investors due to their financial trouble. The Council only intend to move forward when the situation is clarified.
Earlier today, it was confirmed that Milan have agreed a new multi-year deal with BMW to become the club’s new Automotive Partner and also a Premium Partner. On the sidelines of the presentation, the Rossoneri president Paolo Scaroni spoke about the stadium issue.
“The council takes time to assess that the clubs have the necessary financial strength. They have until the end of May to respond,” he said (via Calciomercato.com).
“There is a consensus on the part of the council for the project presented. The opposition seems to me to be pushing for the realisation of the work which could also be a big push for Milano, hit by the Covid period, it would be a very nice thing. The stadium is essential for returning to the elite of European football.”
