The President of AC Milan has confirmed that there are contacts between the owners of the Rossoneri and Inter Milan regarding stadium plans.

Paolo Scaroni spoke to Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews, also confirming that Milan’s intention is firmly to build in the San Donato area.

The news stadium situation in Milano has once again been a hot topic in recent weeks.

The most recent news concerns the sensational development that Milan have floated the idea of working together with Inter to build a stadium in the commune of San Donato.

The two clubs had spent years trying to move forward in plans to replace the San Siro together.

But roadblock after roadblock in the bureaucratic process caused the clubs to change plans.

Milan have been working towards plans in San Donato. And Inter have been doing so in Rozzano.

It has looked clear for some time now that the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri would take separate roads, rather than building a single new stadium to share as they have done with the San Siro.

But a report yesterday indicated that the latter reached out to suggest another plan.

Inter, reportedly, are fairly cold on the idea. But according to Milan’s President Scaroni, there are contacts between the clubs’ respective owners.

AC Milan President Confirms Contacts With Inter Ownership

Rossoneri President Scaroni explained that “The big new development is that we have acquired the land for a stadium in San Donato.”

“We’re moving forward on that path,” he continued.

“And then obviously there are still always contacts between the owners,” he hinted.

“But we don’t want to say anything more specific than that.”

“At the same time, regarding the idea of a ‘light’ renovation of the San Siro, I can comment on that,” Scaroni said. “I like the idea.”

“I’ve been worrying about the stadium for years,” the Milan President said.

“It’s not that I, or we at Milan, are not in favour of the current San Siro.”

“The problem is that it’s a very old stadium. And in need of modernization.”

“And I’ve always wondered how it’s possible to have teams playing there once a week with modernization going on around them,” he noted.

“Doing the work with seventy-thousand people coming and going seems difficult to me.”

Scaroni made it clear that Milan’s position is that “We are focusing on San Donato.”

“We consider everything else an exception to that. We’re on that path, though clearly if any other proposals come along we’ll take them into consideration.”

But he added that “The letter from WeBuild didn’t seem to answer my nagging questions.”
