Beppe Sala, the Mayor of Milan, told Milan and Inter that he was warming up to the idea of a new San Siro.
“I don’t mind the idea that they presented. I wasn’t so keen at the beginning, but this project leaves a lot to see and San Siro remains in some way, open to many sports with a project that is also free for the city,” he told Rai Radio.
At first, Sala was indeed opposed to the idea because it included the removal of Giuseppe Meazza, but since then, Inter and the Rossoneri have also dedicated themselves to include it in their plans for a new venue.
“Now I like their project more,” he said. “However, the stadium’s an issue that will prove divisive because we’re all coaches and therefore we’ll be split on such a matter.”
As such, the politician warned that there was one important question that needed to be ironed out:
“I like the project more now, but we haven’t reached a synthesis yet because the topic of discussion is currently volumetric rights.
“It’s clear the two teams aren’t building the stadium just for the structure itself, otherwise they wouldn’t receive a return on their investment and they’d have to do something else.
“There are open discussions.”
He also remarked, “It’s difficult to speak right now on behalf of the council because it has to go from there, how it’ll be considered.”
