He confessed that the club’s existing home, San Siro, does not fulfill the fans’ current expectations due to its age, and that they are trying to create a new stadium in San Donato.

Milan and Inter have shared the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, also known as the San Siro, since 1947, when the Nerazzurri moved from the Arena Civica. The stadium was inaugurated on September 19, 1926, for the Milan Derby, and has had little refurbishment since then. Inter is also aiming to build a new ground in the Rozzano Municipality soon.
