Inter and Milan 'optimistic' on stadium

Inter and Milan “are working together and are very optimistic on the new stadium project” after a meeting with the local authorities.

Despite the Mayor of Milan offering to sell the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza to the two clubs for restructuring, both Serie A giants agreed that the problems within the arena simply go too deep.

It’d be cheaper and more cost-efficient to build a whole new stadium, which would still be in the San Siro area.

“We are working together with Milan and are very optimistic on the new stadium project,” Inter general manager Alessandro Antonello told reporters.

“The meeting went very well and I think it’ll all end up just fine.”

The President of the local authority who attended the meeting, Lamberto Bertolè, confirmed “the clubs put forward their reasons for the project and their proposal. At the same time, the councillors had the opportunity to indicate the issues that are of interest to the council.

“In about a week, we will call the first commissions to present the project, go into the urban transport issues and discuss if it is in the public interest.

“As soon as that journey is concluded, we will progress to the next phase, but want everything to be done with the clear focus on the best interests of the city and its people.”
