MILAN (AP) -- AC Milan and Inter Milan have agreed to work on a shared stadium project, and prefer ''complete renovation'' of their city-owned San Siro home.
In a statement, Inter Milan says a shared stadium ''will serve in the best interests of all stakeholders.''
The agreement was announced after talks with Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala about redeveloping land around the 80,000-capacity Giuseppe Meazza Stadium. The clubs have shared it for 71 years.
Italian clubs typically rent publicly owned venues, despite Serie A champion Juventus and rivals in other countries generating more income from owning their stadiums.
Inter's statement says a task force should make progress this year ''evaluating several possible options, including a complete renovation of the existing San Siro stadium.''
