[Forgotten wunderkind Alen Halilovic can be Milan’s midfield spark] A surprise signing, a young talent: AC Milan have signed Alen Halilovic to build on the desire to create a stronger and younger team. Alen has great potential, though his career has not yet flourished. He arrives in Serie A fully motivated, ready for that boost following his spell in La Liga. Left-footed, 169cm tall and 69 kilos, he is a creative and technical player with playmaking ability in the tight space, capable of operating throughout the midfield as no.10, winger or holding midfielder offering, therefore, a range of tactical solutions to Rino Gattuso. The young Croatian tends to move in from the right threatening in the middle with abilities to break through the line. Welcome, Alen!

[AC Milan and Intermilan unveil two new concepts for €1bn San Siro redesign] AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano have submitted to the Municipality of Milan a preparatory document for the feasibility project for the creation of a new world-class stadium and a Sports and Entertainment District in the San Siro area.
The two new proposals are the result of a constructive dialogue with the Municipality and have been developed in accordance with the 16 conditions provided by the Municipality and the City Council in November 2019
The new concepts designed by Populous and Manica/Sportium provide for the retention of a part of the current Giuseppe Meazza Stadium within a new retail and sports district that can be used 365 days a year, including about 106,000 square metres of green space (nearly double the current 56,000 square metres of green space on the current site)
It will be a hub dedicated to retail, sports, cultural and leisure activities both outdoors and indoors, including a running track, a cycle path, an outdoor gym, a skateboard park, a five-a-side pitch and sports museum
Most of the sports services will be available free of charge to the Milanese and citizens of the surrounding areas
Both concepts would deliver an innovative district dedicated to the next generation, cutting edge for its low environmental impact and high sustainability, creating a new meeting place for social and recreational activities in the neighbourhood
AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano believe it is essential, especially in light of the current moment, to commence a project that represents more than one billion euros of private investment, which will generate thousands of new jobs and serve as a cornerstone for the future development of the city of Milan and Italian football
