Inter were once again asked to provide clarity on their ownership situation today by Milan’s city mayor Giuseppe Sala.

The Nerazzurri are hoping to build a new stadium in conjunction with AC Milan to replace San Siro, but the clubs are struggling to make any progress in their talks with Milan’s council.

Sala provoked a furious reaction from Inter last month when he said he could not proceed with the project until Inter’s corporate issues became clearer.

But he reiterated his stance while presenting a book today, telling reporters (via sportface.it): “I’d like reassurance that Inter have resolved their issues.

“If they (Suning) come to me and say they will remain the club’s owners for the next three years then I’d no longer have any problems.

“But seeing as I know there were talks to sell the club recently – because the potential buyers have informed me – I’m expecting clarification.

“That’s what I’m asking for, because this is a partnership (between the council, Inter and AC Milan).

“We aren’t opposed to building a new stadium because otherwise we wouldn’t have reached this stage of the process.

“The clubs need to explain everything and then we’ll proceed.”

Inter and AC Milan’s new stadium project plans to knock down the existing San Siro and replace it with a new ground, along with a lucrative entertainment area which could cost more than €1 billion.

Sala admitted it was this extra planned work which was forcing him to tread carefully, explaining: “If Inter and AC Milan had asked us to only build a stadium I’d have far fewer problems, because it’s a clear project with a clear time frame.

“But if the plan is to build the stadium and other facilities, which require four or five years of work and will have an impact on the district, it’s clear that I’ll want to know who I’m working with.”

Inter are thought to prefer Populous over Manica/Sportium as their architectural team to build the new stadium, as explained by a report last week.
