The San Diego City Council Monday afternoon will consider the terms of an $86.2 million offer from San Diego State University to buy the Mission Valley stadium site.

The two city offices raised concerns over the offer only including inflation for a portion of the property and the requirement that the city set aside $10 million for infrastructure surrounding the stadium site.

The university plans to build a satellite campus and college football stadium on the 135-acre site.
