Milan consider new stadium?

Reports suggest Milan are once again considering building a new stadium, and moving out of San Siro.

The Rossoneri had previously won the right to build a new arena in the Portello area of the city, but that fell through after a dispute with the owners of the land, Fondazione Fiera.

Then-President Silvio Berlusconi declared that they would stay at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, much to the chagrin of city rivals Inter, who had hoped to buy the stadium from the council and renovate it.

Berlusconi sold the Diavolo to Chinese owners in April, and both Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport are reporting that a new stadium could again become an option.

The first choice of the club would be to stay at San Siro and redevelop it as their own stadium, but Inter are determined to remain.

Therefore, it’s claimed, CEO Marco Fassone has spoken to small shareholders and the city of Milan about the possibility of a new stadium.

There are no concrete plans in place so far, and a location hasn’t even been identified, but it’s possible the idea of a new Rossonero stadium could resurface in the coming months and years.
