Italian Serie A football club Inter Milan has secured an extension to a deal under which it has exclusive rights to study the feasibility of a potential stadium development in the Rozzano suburb of the city.

The previous deal, which was announced at the end of July 2023, was due to expire at the end of April 2024, with the club hoping to have developed a full feasibility study, including a cost breakdown, before the deadline. However, Inter will now have until January 31, 2025, to explore the possible project in further detail.

The renewal has been agreed with real estate groups Brioschi and Bastogi, which own the land in question through a company called Infrafin.

According to the Calcio e Finanza website, Inter paid €847,000 (£724,000/$905,000) in 2023 to hold the exclusive rights to study the possible development of the land.

In December, Inter launched a fan consultation initiative surrounding its proposed move to a new 70,000-seat stadium in Rozzano.

In October, Inter offered a glimpse of life after the venue otherwise known as the San Siro by revealing initial concept images from Populous of the proposed new facility, with initial hopes that it could open ahead of the 2028-29 season. A month earlier, initial plans were presented to the Mayors of Rozzano and the neighbouring municipality of Assago.

The stadium would be built on green space near the A7 motorway, which connects Milan and Genoa.

However, efforts to keep Inter in Milan have not completely vanished. In February this year, Italian construction company Webuild was asked to deliver a feasibility study within three months concerning the redevelopment of the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza – better known as the San Siro – in order for it to remain the home of Inter and city rival AC Milan.

The news emerged following a meeting between Giuseppe Sala, Mayor of Milan; Alessandro Antonello, corporate CEO of Inter; and Paolo Scaroni, president of AC Milan. The purpose of the meeting was to verify a feasibility plan relating to a possible San Siro revamp.
