Inter’s potential change of ownership could change everything as far as the club’s joint stadium project with AC Milan is concerned, according to an Italian media report today.
Tuttosport’s print edition said there was very little progress being made with plans to build a new San Siro, which the clubs first began discussing more than two years ago.
Milan’s city council must deliver a verdict on whether there is a public interest in Inter and AC Milan building a new stadium, but they do not want to deal with such a political ‘hot potato’ at the moment – not even with the upcoming elections now postponed until October.
“It is not possible to proceed at the moment, despite clarification sent from Inter and AC Milan to the council tweo weeks ago,” the Turin-based paper reported.
The council would rather let the new elected officials deal with the San Siro issue at the end of this year, but there is total uncertainty over the project now because of Inter’s ongoing ownership saga.
TS said that the Nerazzurri’s new owners – if indeed Suning chose to sell the club – could decide to not proceed with a shared project alongside AC Milan.
The report did not specify, but this would appear to suggest Inter would pursue building their own stadium instead.
