Milan are paying €80 million on salaries this season, which makes them the club that spends the most after Juventus, Inter and Roma; Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano are the highest paid Rossoneri.

It’s the time of the year again when La Gazzetta dello Sport publishes the salaries of every single Serie A player.

The club-by-club & player-by-player yearly wages charts were posted on the pink-newspaper this Wednesday and Milan are in 4th place in terms of spending money on salaries with €80m – before taxes – to be earned by players in this term. This represents a decrease from last year’s €101m, which put Milan in third place that year.

Carlos Bacca and Luiz Adriano who joined Milan last summer are the highest paid players with €3.5m and €3m after taxes before going to their pockets this year. After them comes captain Riccardo Montolivo who renewed his contract at the start of the summer and took a €1 million pay-cut.

Juventus have the highest wage bill in Serie A and will be paying their players €145m. They also have the highest paid player in the league – Gonzalo Higuain – and the highest paid coach – Massimiliano Allegri. They are followed by Inter who’ll pay €120m. Crutone’s bill is the lowest – €14m. Here is the full list of wage bills in Serie A, according to the data of the 7th of September 2016 La Gazzetta:

It is important to note that the wage bill reported above are gross numbers while players’ salaries are net numbers. The total bill in Serie A in this season amounts to €927 million. It’s a rise from last season’s €882m but still much lower than the €1100 million paid in the 2011/12 Serie A. The numbers however do not include performance-related bonuses so in reality they could be higher.

Even Juve, who are paying the most in the league, pay significantly less to their players than other top European sides. For instance, according to Gazzetta dello Sport’s gross numbers, Manchester United pay €304m, Man City €302m, Bayern Munich €273m, Barcelona €248m, Chelsea €237m and Real Madrid €209m. Top coaches are also much better paid abroad: Pep Guardiola earns €18m, Jose Mourinho €16m, Arsene Wenger €10m, Jorgen Klopp €8.5m, Carlo Ancelotti, Luis Enrique and Diego Simeone €8m, Antonio Conte €7.5m, Mauricio Pochettino €6.5m and Zinedine Zidane €5.5m.

We seriously need to lose some dead weight players asap and make plans to build a new stadium!

The Stadium is the key. We are 15 years behind Juventus and the rest of Europe.
Unless we build our own stadium to get full match day revenue then we are not thinking strategically at all and will remain up and down for many seasons.

Actually nice to see that we have cut 21 millions on dead weight. But I didn’t realized before that we cut Montolivo’s salary by 1 million.

On the list starting from Adriano down to Lapadula are all can be consider as overpaid player if we compare with the rest of other team.

Excellent work by Galliani for significantly reducing the wage bill which has been the strategy since introduction of financial fair play.
Still this can be improve upon as some players earn higher while others less than their contribution on the pitch.
Overall, we have a good wage bill that will allow us to significantly improve the team and compete on and off the pitch.
Kudos Galliani

Not sure why honda gets so much stick. Seen other players play worse, some of them even cost a lot to buy, where as Honda was free. Also he didn’t have a bad season last year. Got to remember he barely plays in his preferred position.

It has taken time, but Galliani has seriously worked on trimming our squad down and our budget. Very good work, to be honest, a lot of the signings were his “fault” to begin with, but he has done well to fix his mistake. I think Adriano should leave in the january market, he is the top earner and his performances have just gotten worse. It really sucked that his deal with China fell through at the last minute in january, to get 14 million from his sale would have been a real boost

I am actually surprised by most comments here because comparing our squad to napolis on quality they are totally way better…..gholam and hysaj earn 0.6 million. ……our is currently over paid.. ..poli and berttolacci salary can pay for four to five quality players from napoli. ….galliani needs to go.. ..let the Chinese restructure milan….we need good business managers to improve milan.. .we are seriously in need of a great management

Milanista121
Guest
Milanista121

If you mention those two and compare Hysaj and Ghoulam to Abate and Antonelli… are you implying that they are better? Because they’re not. They’re very good players, both of them, but not better, if anything they are equal, and Hysaj can be better than both considering his age, but I wouldnt choose any of them over Luca or Ignia. Just my opinion.

mykel
Guest

But i would rather have quality players like hysaj than bench warmers like poli and berttolacci

Milanista121

Milanista121

But then again, our full backs are set, we have plenty of quality there. Where we need quality is in midfield.

The problem with milan regarding the salary is simple: they have way too many players. A proper managed team usually only have 23-25 players in their roster and primaveras as reserves to step up in case many players get injured.

Milan have 24 players with primavera players as reserves. xD The problem is there is to many average none consistent players of same standard in the team.

That is now. Im talking about last season when milan had more players with high salaries like de jong and diego lopez. Its not that hard to comprehend mate
