After looking to cool his war of words with Inter, Milan city mayor Beppe Sala is ready to restart talks over a new San Siro stadium project, but could face additions to the initial plans.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, Sala yesterday sought to clarify his position after asking Inter for ownership guarantees and receiving a scathing response, and has made his office available for further discussions.
Inter and AC Milan are looking to build a new home ground at the San Siro site but have seen little progress, and it is felt that additional requests from the clubs could lead to further delays.
As a form of compensation for the project, the clubs are looking to secure commercial buildings around the stadium in order to repay their investments, but this could require Sala to take additional steps to consider the plans before signing off.
The mayor is keen to reopen dialogue but remains wary of giving the go ahead until he is satisfied with the funds available to Inter owners Suning, or their stance on a potential investment or takeover of the club.
