Inter’s hopes of moving out of the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and into a new stadium could be threatened by the ongoing uncertainty over the ownership of the club.

Alongside city rivals AC Milan, the Nerazzurri had hoped to begin work on the construction of a new stadium on the site of San Siro, with plans submitted to the Municipality of Milan.

However, as reported in today’s newspaper edition of Corriere dello Sport, there are two factors that could delay or jeopardise the move, with Inter’s ownership being the most significant.

Current owners Suning are looking to bring in investment or sell the club in the coming months as they battle mounting financial insecurity, and are believed to be in negotiations with BC Partners.

Until this has been resolved, the local government are unwilling to sign off on the construction of the new stadium and would need greater clarification.

Elsewhere, upcoming elections in the city have also been cited as a potential factor in delays, with the outcome of the vote having an impact on the plans.
