Inter And AC Milan To Share New Stadium In Near Future
Inter and AC Milan are set to both play at the same stadium again once again after they move away from the San Siro.
Italian publication La Repubblica recently claimed that the two Milan clubs are willing to proceed with a brand new, €600m stadium situated just a few hundred metres away from the San Siro.
AC have been extremely keen on the idea for a while now but Inter are now onboard.
"Inter and Milan are working together," Inter CEO Alessandro Antonello told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"We still have work to do but the time is right. Soon we will inform the city of our shared choice. Milan needs a stadium worthy of the top European cities."
The feeling from the clubs is that there is more value in building a new stadium as opposed to renovating the legendary Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Atlanta United's futuristic Mercedes Benz Stadium, a venue that has hosted the Super Bowl, is believed to be an inspiration for the new stadium.
Milan and Inter have decided, according to la Repubblica, to build a new stadium together, instead of renovating San Siro. The new stadium seats 60,000 to 65,000 spectators. The MetLife stadium in New York is mainly seen as an example, because it is used by two clubs. pic.twitter.com/mmEYoQRVKc

Built in 1926, the famous San Siro has hosted some of the all-time great games. From four European Cup finals to six games at the 1990 World Cup, this venue is steeped in history.
However, despite its legendary status and aura it commands, it does feel like the right moment for Inter and AC to move with the times.
