AC Milan took a further step in a move away from the iconic San Siro with the purchase of land to build a new stadium,
a source close to the matter confirmed on Friday.
The northern Italian giants currently share the San Siro Stadium to the north-west of the city with rivals Inter Milan.
AC Milan have now acquired a 256,000 square metre plot in the San Donato municipality to the south-east of the city,
15 kilometres from the San Siro.
According to the Italian press, talks between the municipality of San Donato and local residents will enter a decisive
phase next week with a view to a possible building permit being issued.
Last September, AC Milan announced that it had set its sights on San Donato for a 70,000-seater stadium, without
specifying the possible date of its inauguration.READ MORE
