According Gazzetta dello Sport By June Milan had decided on a new 60,000-seat stadium some time ago, but Inter favored another renovation of the 80,000-seat stadium – which opened in 1926.

The current San Siro was opened in 1926, but has been renovated several times since
San Siro is set to be demolished with a new stadium built in its place for AC and Inter Milan
Inter Milan have joined their neighbor AC Milan in agreeing that a complete reconstruction is better
It will be set partially below street level to reduce visual impact on the neighborhood and the area around the stadium will also be developed.
Both teams will be able to continue playing at San Siro during the construction of the new adjacent arena.
Another reason Inter rejected the renewal option was because it would mean reduced capacity for several seasons while the work was being done.
