In mid-November Erick Thohir, the new Indonesian owner of Inter FC, announced he is hoping to pursue the plan of his predecessor Massimo Moratti and build the club an own stadium. His plan is reportedly focused around the area of Rho in north-western Milan.

Speaking of the plans Thohir said his club would leave San Siro, Italy's largest stadium' to derby rivals AC Milan. However now AC Milan are also confirmed to be on the lookout for options to leave the stadium. Not only are Rossoneri hoping to eventually move out, they're also considering a new home in Rho.

Luciano Pilotti, head of Arexpo (Milan Expo 2015 organisers), confirmed he had already met with AC Milan officials regarding their potential takeover of the exposition site once Expo 2015 ends.

Should both clubs succeed in their plans of building private stadiums, the municipality of Milan may be left with a huge burden of empty San Siro. The football-specific stadium is expected to undergo further renovation soon to be able to hold Champions League final again.
