thumbnail Hello,

The Nerazzurri are desperate to leave the Giuseppe Meazza, which they currently co-habit with AC Milan, and could be in a position to do so in only four years time

Inter have reportedly taken the first steps towards building their own stadium, with the intention of moving into their new home in time for the 2016-17 season.

The Nerazzurri currently share the Giuseppe Meazza with city rivals AC Milan, but il Corriere dello Sport claims president Massimo Moratti is keen to follow the example set by Juventus, who have reaped enormous benefits both on and off the field since moving into their own arena last year.

The paper also states that Inter have already identified five potential sites for the new stadium and have already held preliminary talks with a construction company.

The proposed move away from San Siro is primarily motivated by money, as Inter are currently only tenants in the council-owned Giuseppe Meazza. Exclusive ownership of their own ground would generate much higher returns in terms of gate receipts.

The aforementioned Bianconeri, who ground-shared with Torino up until last summer, firmly believe Juventus Stadium played an integral role in this year's Scudetto success.
