AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has been speaking very positively about the future regeneration plans of San Siro, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking to TG3, with quotes reported by FcINternews, Paolo Scaroni explained that he feels everything is now heading in the right direction and that major developments in the saga will start to happen very soon.
This confidence is predominantly down to the assurances that Paolo Scaroni has recently received from the Mayor of Milan, Giuseppe Sala.
“It seems to me that the Municipal Administration is also ready because I received assurances from Mayor Sala that, with the changes we have made, our project is going well; I also feel that the opposition, given that we are in election time, is in favour of building the new stadium at San Siro.
“I would like to say that on this front I feel comfortable that things will happen in a short time. This is our project together with Milan.”
Both clubs have been desperate to have a purpose-built stadium that is privately owned for many years now as they have seen how much more money other European clubs can make in matchday revenue compared to Italian clubs.
By building a new stadium from scratch, it can be made more accessible for modern life, and many more revenue-generating schemes and projects can be incorporated into the design.
