Moratti plans new Inter stadium

There are reports that Inter chief Massimo Moratti wants to move the Nerazzurri out of San Siro to a new home by 2012.

In the peninsula, stadiums are generally owned by city councils and leased out to the clubs. Strangely, one of the exceptions to that rule is the Stadio Giglio, which is owned by Lega Pro sleeping giants Reggiana.

But now La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Inter President Moratti is tired of sharing the Stadio Meazza with city rivals Milan and is ready to propose a plan for a new stadium.

The new ground would probably be further out of the city with one possible site being the Rho-Pero region, which has excellent transport links.

Moratti is said to be an admirer of Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena and Ajax's Amsterdam Arena and reports suggest the new ground would be a 60,000-seater arena.

A number of restaurants, hotels and other shops would also be built to turn the area into a hub of activity even on non-match days.

Over the next two months, Moratti will be finalising the financial plans and the formal proposal should be made in December.

If the go-ahead is received, the new stadium could be open for action in 2012.
