AC Milan president Scaroni: Mayor accepts new stadium needed to keep stars in Italy
AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni says new stadium plans are on track.
Scaroni says Milan and Inter Milan are happy working together on the project.
“I am convinced that we will not be able to become major players again if we do not a have modern stadiums," he stated, “comparable to those of the teams we play against in the Champions League. We have been talking about it for almost two years, on Monday we had a meeting with Sala and I came out feeling comforted.
“The mayor agrees that a new stadium is needed to ensure that the two Milanese teams stop selling their jewels like Lukaku and Donnarumma. We need a stadium that increases our income and that improves the matches as events.
“I received words of reassurance from the mayor.
“We need to finalize details involving the real estate. We are optimistic, confident, we are moving quickly to start as soon as possible."
“Given that we plan to meet with the municipal administration in the next few days, we must build the new stadium next to San Siro: there is no doubt. On the other hand, the whole real estate project that we had formulated two years ago requires a revision.
“The times and needs have changed compared to two years ago.
“Our idea is to proceed in two phases. On the one hand, starting on the stadium, on the other review the Real Estate project together with the administration to make it consistent with everyone's needs."
