Juventus could buy San Siro from the Milan city council and use it for certain games, according to a shock report.
MilanNews – who cited il Corriere della Sera – recently stated that two firms are in the running to manage the project, which would be on the site of the current stadium and likely built next to it.
However, the same outlet also revealed that both Milan and Inter threatened to leave the San Siro district altogether and build a new stadium in the north of the city.
Milan mayor Beppe Sala recently put forward the idea of the clubs buying the 97-year-old structure to renovate it in an interview with ANSA, though it was revealed by La Gazzetta Dello Sport(via MilanNews.it) that the offer to buy had been rejected.
Now, Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport have put forward a ‘provocative’ suggestion, as per MilanNews, stating that Juventus could buy the San Siro for the €70m asking price.
The idea is described as ‘not just fantasy football’ but a ‘genuine hypothesis’ which would make sense from a financial standpoint.
The report claims that the Allianz Stadium’s capacity (41,507) has restricted the Bianconeri’s ambitions, and that the idea of buying a stadium like San Siro to play big Champions League games in could be explored.
