Inter and AC Milan are refusing to give up the possibility of taking their new stadium project elsewhere in the city according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere della Sera.
In the past few days representatives from both clubs met with the owners of the private land in the Sesto San Giovanni area of the city.
It has not went much further than these discussions but is a sure sign that the former Falck area is a real alternative to building at San Siro and no longer just an area the clubs could use to apply pressure on the city council to get what they want.
Milan city mayor has recently said further talks are needed with the clubs who wish to build hotels, offices and commercial spaces alongside the new stadium at San Siro but if the clubs were to move to Sesto San Giovanni, they would be able to do what they wish with it being private land rather than council owned land.
The report also states that political party Lega’s attempts to have San Siro recognised as a UNESCO heritage site has been postponed until the next meeting of the regional council.
