Scaroni offers update on San Siro situation after meeting with City Council

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has expressed a willingness to discuss a repurposing of the current San Siro after a meeting with the City Council.

The Rossoneri – along with neighbours Inter – have made their intentions clear since the start of September that they wish to move into the modern era by building a new state-of-the-art stadium.

Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous are the two competing firms trying to land the project, and their projects were presented at an official event.

However, things appear to have hit a wall since. ANSA reported that the two clubs asked for clarifications on the construction of a new stadium, while il Corriere di Milano (via even suggested that the idea of moving to a new site 10km south east of the city centre is a possibility.

A meeting was held on Tuesday morning in Milano between the City Council and leaders of the two clubs to try and break through on certain issues, and Scaroni spoke to reporters about the current situation.

“We talked a lot about space: we talked a lot about one, two or three rings, but this changes little from the points of view of space,” he said (via

“We will analyse this innovative hypothesis since we have never seen two such close-by stadiums. The ideal would be to find an agreement soon with the Council and then go to the Superintendency.

“Today we only talked about the size of the San Siro, other topics have not been treated.”
