You're wrong

For comparison Milan is biggest than London, if you take in consideration the city proper:

Milan 181.76 sqkm
London 2.90 sqkm

While if you compare the Greater London with the Greater Milan:

London 1,569 sqkm
Milan 1,980 sqkm

What about Rome? The city proper is 1,287.36 sqkm

C'mon, nowadays Greater London is considered the city proper.
At least since there is the Mayor of London (which is obviously the Greater London and not just the City) even if in many ways it works as a metro area institution yet.

That said, administrative borders do not determine how big a city is. Better to look at urban area and its population.

For istance London urban area covers the whole Greater London

Aniway we're a bit off topic

Right. The city proper does not reflect actual size.

Greater London scarily could technically include birmingham in a decade time with HS2. Even talks about potentially renaming birmingham airport to London birmingham. It will afterall be as close in terms of time to reach than heathrow.

Greater London was (is) a grouping of the City (of London) with the other 'cities' (boroughs) sorrounding her

They're in total 32 (if I'm not wrong) and act as independent 'players' with a central coordination. Even today with the institution of the London's Mayor

In central London you can see, for istance, old-style lampost labeled as 'City of Westminster' which witness how London's boroughs are 'cities' themselves

There is a good thread here discussing the populations, GDPs and areas of major metro areas - mostly people arguing but some interesting stuff nonetheless if you care to read more about it...

Milan municipality is relatively small (as for Paris). but the city proper is 4 times bigger in terms of population and many more times bigger in terms of territory

London is not the biggest in Europe, but it's behind Moscow and Istanbul
