Sala Milan's Mayor: "I've called Milan and Inter: they'll be at the City Hall tomorrow morning. While it's clear to me that Milan are looking with interest at La Maura, I haven't understood where Inter are looking. Tomorrow we'll clarify"
It’s not clear where Inter are looking because they are in actual fact not looking nor are they interested in building a new stadium.

This thread should be closed. It is a waste of time: 207 pages of nothing but empty hopes.

So today Antonello and Scaroni met with Sala (mayor of Milano).

First priority is to have co-operation project (the Cathedral) in place of Meazza. Scaroni also communicated Milan's plan of their own stadium in La Maura area. They will assess this option in the coming weeks.

Antonello said Inter also has a plan B, private area but nothing else is known about it.

Interesting times. Is this a good cop - bad coop performance by the clubs directed at city council? Is it a bluff or are they really going to abandon Meazza to build their own stadiums?

where is the stadium? on South China sea? 😄 😄

Without wanting to reveal too much, I can say that preparation for our secret plan B is already well underway. Thanks to Steven's connections, we are leveraging the People's Liberation Army experience in constructing artificial islands. A location in the Lugarian see has already been agreed. This was the closest available location to Milano where we could be assured of a fast build, without delays due to red-tape.

Well done milan council and Zhang...we will be stuck at a crumbling San Siro while bbilan enjoys a modern stadium.
I don`t think that will be the case.
Now Gazzetta goes with the story that our plan B is also our own stadium. A private land (which is a secret where it is :lol:) and inside Milano.
seems to be outside Milan

Already wrote that they are playing poker. They were forced to threat council that they will be empty-handed, otherwise they won`t move a finger.


Here is what Antonello stated:
“It was a formal and serene meeting with Milan’s city council. The primary option remains San Siro with Milan, but the Rossoneri have officially confirmed today that they are interested in the area of La Mura,” Antonello told reporters as quoted by Calcio&Finanza.
This will require a few weeks of analysis from Milan, then we’ll meet again to see if this idea will be developed or if they’ll stick to the original plan at San Siro.

Gazzetta dello Sport reported last week that tension between the two clubs is growing as new Milan owner Gerry Cardinale has decided to drop the Nerazzurri and build a new stadium alone, away from San Siro.
“Inter have always worked in a coherent and determined way. For us, the main project is San Siro with Milan, but if they make a different choice, we also have a plan B,” claimed Antonello.
“We are also working on an alternative option. We are waiting for Milan’s assessment to understand what to do next.”

Is Inter’s plan B play at San Siro alone, with Milan moving to a different area?
“Absolutely No. Our main option is San Siro with Milan, but if they go to La Mura, we have a plan B which is not San Siro. We have identified an area, but we can’t reveal it. It’s outside Milan.”

Inter and Milan have been sharing the Stadio Meazza in the area of San Siro since 1947, but Milan’s decision to explore different solutions for their new stadium means both Milanese clubs may no longer use the iconic arena anymore in the near future.

Sounds like Conte`s plan B 😅

Don't have one.
Unless both teams aren't playing mind games with city officials, it seems like milan is leading this project, and we are just following and potentially adapting to whatever they decide, which is absolutely pathetic. Knowing our owners second option seems much more plausible.

One theory is all these three actors are just having a performance here to force the city council's hand. Sala has been the intermediary between the clubs and the council in this matter. Council tries to squeeze and squeeze the requirements which will eventually make it impossible for the clubs to go with the Cathedral project financially.

Maybe Sala is just playing his part here.

‘NOBODY WANTS THE OLD SAN SIRO ANYMORE,’ ACCORDING TO MAYOR OF MILAN
After a meeting took place on Tuesday between representatives of Milan and Inter, the mayor of the city, Giuseppe Sala, has claimed that ‘nobody wants the old San Siro anymore.’

Inter director Alessandro Antonello has already commented on the developments following talks earlier on Tuesday, whilst Milan are yet to provide any form of statement.

Sala, who has served as the mayor of Milan since 2016, told Gazzetta dello Sport: “One obvious thing has emerged from this meeting: nobody wants the old San Siro anymore. I am disappointed as mayor, citizen and as a fan – but it was something we fully understood.”

“If the clubs choose to move to a new area, it will be a problem for the municipality and it will not be easy, but let’s take it one step at a time,” he continued.

Plans to demolish the iconic stadium have been discussed over the course of the last year, with both Milan and Inter preferring a move away from the San Siro area.

The cost of running the Giuseppe Meazza single-handedly is thought to be too much of a financial burden for either side.

Sala added: “It is clear that at that point the stadium does not fall within the structural interests of the municipality, the only possibility is to open it to operators who want to use it for concerts or events”.

“The authorization process for the stadium near the current Meazza is going ahead, but I have asked Milan to respond to our request within two or three weeks or to tell us if they plan to abandon this proposal.”

It is now believed that Inter is planning a move away from the centre of the city altogether.

“I still want the teams in the city, but Inter don’t see other areas in the municipality. In fact, despite all the plans mentioned above, if another area has not emerged in Milan, it is because there probably isn’t one,” Sala confirmed.

If Inter has to build a stadium on its own you will all see how small of a club we really have become. You'll be begging for the Meazza back.

It's always been so obviously transparent the council 1. don't want to invest and 2. milk Inter and Milan for as much rent as they can

Every single step of the way, the clubs have reiterated they will not renovate San Siro, that they want a new stadium to own and not rent, and all this green-litigation to prevent, delay, persuade the clubs into staying at San Siro to prevent it from being a massive black hole for maintenance is not going to convince them otherwise.

Until now, the municipality could call the clubs' bluff because they didn't have Plan Bs in place. Now that there are more concrete plans for Milan (at the Hippodrome/Sesto San Giovanni), and now the reports with Inter at Assago, they can either allow the Cathedral plan, where everyone is happy, or be stuck with the black hole of a concrete wasteland that will be San Siro because concerts and expos will prefer to be held in private stadia where things don't have to go layers of public bureaucracy, will have more commercial earning potential with the better and more numerous corporate boxes, and will be constructed with events planning in mind, not just football

‘NOBODY WANTS THE OLD SAN SIRO ANYMORE,’ ACCORDING TO MAYOR OF MILAN

:yao:
Finally! After all those years where there has been reports that Milan wants a new stadium and we stick to the San Siro. In my 22 years being an Inter fan (yes I am getting old) there had always been rumours about a new stadium, but here we are - so far nothing really happened. I would not be suprised if this whole saga continues for another + 10 years :yao:

So this Assago is a bit like Sesto San Giovanni. Within Milano metropolitan area but a separate town outside of the city. What was Milan's plan again? Where would they have their own stadium?

Sala commenting today that he's gonna meet Gerry Cardinale to understand if Milan is really going for the La Maura to build their own stadium.

Interesting times. Bluff or a real thing? There were reports that Milan wants to go their own way because they have concerns over Inter's ability to be in the stadium project. Thanks Zhang.

Assago must be a good place for Asado 🥩
GdS: Inter have decided to try and build their new stadium in the south-west area of the Milan metropolitan zone, in a town on the outskirts of the city called Assago.

Zhang has already signed the preliminary documents with the owners of the private land where the new stadium could be built, allowing them to start drawing up concrete plans.

Inter’s Corporate CEO spoke to reporters on Wednesday after the ECA Board Member Meeting that took place in Milan
Asked whether Inter are planning to build their new arena in Assago, Antonello replied [via Gazzetta]: “I am confident about Plan A, which is San Siro along with Milan. After three and a half years of intense work and approval from the city council, although some details haven’t been fixed yet, it would be worth thinking twice before dropping the project.

“As of today, that [Assago] is the main alternative. Now we are waiting for Milan’s assessment on La Maura.

“The next steps are clear to Inter, whether Milan stay at San Siro or move elsewhere. We have a plan B that aims to protect the interests of the club and especially the fans.”

UPDATE: Sala strikes back :awyeah:

MILAN AND INTER FACE OPPOSITION FROM ENVIRONMENTALISTS IN NEW STADIUM QUEST​

Their plans have already been communicated to the city and immediately opposition has emerged, putting the two clubs in a difficult spot.

Corriere Milano details how Enrico Fedrighini, a member of Beppe Sala’s team at City Hall, has announced a public assembly in the Lampugnano area of Milan to protest against the Rossoneri’s plans, creating the slogan ‘let’s defend the neighbourhood from cement’.

Things are no easier for Inter, with Carlo Monguzzi – the group leader of the Green Party – echoing these sentiments, saying he was ready for ‘a tough fight without fear’ against Inter’s plans in Assago, wanting to avoid ‘concrete pouring in a green area inside the Parco Sud’.
Conclusion: only Jubentus are allowed to build stadiums in Italy.

Also from Assago municipality, they say they haven't talked with Inter, but they know the area is in Rozzano (municipality next to / close to Assago).

Our best bet is to share Stadio Breda with Pro Sesto or move to Jiangsu and revitalise Nanjing Olympic Stadium.

Man if all the parties involved in this deal had the slightest bit of common sense they would sell the sansiro for penuts to us and bbilan and let us fucken redevelopp that whole area... WTF is Milano gonna do with it if either of the team play in the san siro?
Us going outside of where there already is a stadium is always gonna bring opposition by some protestors and is gonna delay the fucken project....
The current san siro region is perfect for the stadium heck they built an extra tram line to the stadium like 4/5 years back why just let that investment go to shit?
It should not even be a discussion Milano needs something in that area and both bbilan and us need a new fucken stadium all we need is a bit of a financial help and well redevelopp that whole fucken erea which will benefit the city but no these fucken Italian politicians always haev to play power games.

Again the first time we started to seriously think about a new stadium was in the early 2000 and we have gotten fucking no where it s emberassing.
