AC Milan owner Gerry Cardinale is “not ruling out” collaboration with Inter Milan on a new stadium project.

The Rossoneri owner spoke to Italian outlet Calcio e Finanza, explaining the situation between his club and their city rivals regarding a new stadium.

Inter and Milan have both made building a new stadium a priority.

That has been the case for a long time. For several years, the two clubs have been working towards building a more modern stadium to bring their infrastructure and increase revenues.

What is not clear is where the clubs will build.

Additionally, it is not certain whether the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri will build one stadium together, or each go it alone and build their own stadium.

When the clubs had been pursuing plans in the San Siro area, they had done so jointly.

Inter and Milan had spent several years trying to secure approval to demolish the existing stadium and build a new one in its place.

However, since those plans seemingly fell through, the clubs have went their separate ways.

Milan have been working towards plans in the commune of San Donato.

And Inter have been working on plans in the commune of Rozzano.

AC Milan Owner Cardinale “Not Ruling Out” Stadium Collaboration With Inter

Recent reports have suggested, however, that Milan have in fact reached out to Inter.

And the Rossoneri’s owner Cardinale has confirmed as much.

The Milan owner feels that there is room for the two clubs to work together.

What is a much more open question, however, is what form any potential collaboration would take.

Cardinale confirmed that he recently made a phone call to Inter President Steven Zhang.

“I’m totally prepared to build a stadium for Milan on our own,” the Rossoneri owner said.

“But at the same time I’m open to other options. Including collaboration with Inter.”
