Milan:

The San Siro will likely have an artificial pitch before the start of next season.

The Gazzetta dello Sport reports that work on a hybrid field featuring synthetic and natural layers will begin in June, and the first match for the new pitch will be the Trofeo Berlusconi exhibition in August.

Neither AC Milan nor Inter Milan have made an official announcement yet, although Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has already voiced support for the move, especially after a recent pitch complaint from Barcelona.

The pitch has been in poor shape for years, ever since a partial roof was installed at the stadium for the 1990 World Cup, reducing exposure to sun.
