The expert on Italian football and finances Marco Bellinazzo talked to Top Calcio 24 about Inter and Milan’s thoughts for San Siro:

“Looking at a short time forward, Milan and Inter want to modernize San Siro, most of all before the Champions League final 2016 with the target to improve the economical profit by building stores outside the stadium and decreasing the capacity of the stadium. Looking longer forward, both Inter and Milan want to get their own stadium, but the times are very much longer than for example Roma, Udinese and Fiorentina. Milan and Inter pay 4 million euro’s every year to play at San Siro. Building their own stadium also means not having to pay these costs, but most of all the business depends on what you build around the stadium. You can’t just depend on owning the stadium to make more profit, you need to do it the right way.”

    I don’t expect us to build a new stadium, I think we’re gonna stay at the Meazza (perhaps finally let it have that name alone, though I expect Thohir to make a business move and give naming rights to some sort of a sponsor that would help in the reconstruction).

    I’m happy with the Meazza if they can make it profitable. We have history here, it’s a huge stadium, one of the best known in the world, and if it is feasible to adapt it to modern conditions, I’d love nothing more than to have it as Inter’s only home.

    The most important thing remains whether it is or isn’t the best thing for the club, though. Emotions aside.
