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.
