Flamini so ver paid along with mexes, Abate, Urby and KPB underpaid

Mr Goph

Flamini overpaid? U guys should check liverpools pay roll and see what overpay looks like.


Flamini’s contract expires soon… so he will either leave or be offered a renewal at a lower wage (I hear 2.25 million~).

Jean C.

OMG!!! flamini makes 4.5m AND BONERA MAKES 2m!!! thats 6.5 million € just wasted!!! for 3 years thats 19.5m… enough to add to our club money and bring Bastian Schweinsteiger!!! DAMN IT!!!


ffs…gattuso, van bommel, dorf, nesta…flamini all overpaid at this point! hahahaha


I think pato is ok for now, ibra should lower later, bonera, gattuso, ambrosini should leave. thiago should be increased and giancarlo and pato is brilliant become friends or we lose woefully against barcelona.


Wow i can see why the club has going negative every seasson with this wages, ibra deserves the 9mill. But as sad as i am for the old players of milan leaving, i am also happy because the wages will dropp to a all time low. And who know mybe the next seasson milan can acctuly make profit. But a stadium owned by milan is stil a dream for most milan fans ;(
