Milan mayor Beppe Sala has warned the Rossoneri and Inter that the council ‘can’t lose ownership of San Siro’, regardless of its fate.
It is understood that Milan and Inter would split ownership of San Siro if both clubs opted to rebuild the stadium, but Sala has now threatened to throw a spanner in the works.
“We need to find a formula because it’s owned by the council with a very long-term concession,” he told reporters.
“It’s clear that we can’t lose ownership of the stadium. They can hand it over to us, [playing on it] via a long-term concession.
“Inter and Milan are now making assessments from an economic-financial point of view: building a new stadium will cost about €500-600m and I believe they’re also evaluating the cost of refurbishments.
“There’s only one constraint that I place on it: we can’t lose the stadium. Frankly I can’t say what the solution will be, but I’m inviting them to come up with a proposal.”
