Paolo Scaroni has said that AC Milan and Inter will be able to start playing in their new stadium in 2024 but sections of the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza will be kept for a sports park.
The Rossoneri president is confident that the club has resolved their bureaucratic issues with the Milan council and that the money generated from owning the stadium will allow the club to be more active in the transfer market.
“The stadium will be ready by 2024,” Scaroni told Corriere della Sera.
“There will be a phase in which the new stadium will be completed and the San Siro will still be standing. Then the refurbishment of the San Siro will start, which will cost us 74 million and allow you to save parts of the old stadium in a sports park.
“I think we are on the right path. The city council had made us a proposal that we don’t like very much because it has reduced our requests for construction, but we accepted that because it should resolve the political part of the matter.
“With the proceeds from the stadium you can buy a whole team.”
