The presidents of the two clubs confirmed the shocking news on Monday.

"Everything is proceeding.

"We will make a new San Siro together, next to the old one in the same area of land. The old man will be knocked down and in its place, there will be new buildings built.

"It's an extremely complicated process, it would be beautiful to have the Olympics' opening ceremony in the new San Siro, but we are not certain." Said AC Milan President Paolo Scaroni.

The stadium now belongs to Milan’s local council after AC Milan, the original owners sold it in 1935. The two clubs are now joint tenants and will move once their new home is completed.
