AC Milan and Inter have reportedly been forced to come up with a ‘Plan B’ in case they don’t get their wish regarding the new stadium project.
Monday is set to be an important day for the future of San Siro as the City Council will take a vote on the public interest of the new project.
Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous showed their respective ‘Wedding ring’ and ‘Cathedral’ designs at an event last month, but the road towards a new stadium has been described as ‘uphill’.
According to Tuttosport (as cited by MilanNews.it), the constraints which could potentially be put upon the current stadium may be what everything hinges on.
City mayor Beppe Sala (and not just him) hopes for a redevelopment of the historic stadium, whereas the clubs have no real burning desire to focus a lot of energy on the old ground.
The two clubs are however serious about continuing on their path, and as a result the respective owners Elliott Management and Suning have instructed an advisor to look for other areas within the borders of Milan.
This is with the objective of understanding if there are concrete alternatives to Sesto San Giovanni, which has been touted as a possible site before.
