Milan are said to be paying €117 million on salaries this season, which makes them the club that spends the most after Juventus. Leonardo Bonucci and Gigio Donnarumma are the best-paid players.
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 Thursday and Milan are in 2nd place in terms of spending money on salaries with €117m – before taxes – to be earned by players in this term. This represents an increase from last year’s €80m, but it may be lowered in the coming hours as Jose Sosa is heading towards Trabzonspor.
The highest paid Milan player – and joint best-paid in the league – is summer-signing Leonardo Bonucci. The ex-Juventus man will be receiving €7.5m net this season. In second place, there is Gianluigi Donnarumma as the 18-year-old goalkeeper signed a new contract with a salary of €6m net.
Gigio’s brother is on a contract worth €1m per season; Suso is currently paid the same, but is expected to soon renew and get a pay-rise to €3m per season. Nikola Kalinić is the highest-paid forward at Milan now after Carlos Bacca’s exit, as he will be making €3.5m this year, compared to €2m by André Silva and €160,00 by the 19-year-old Patrick Cutrone who’s stolen all headlines so far.
Lucas Biglia is on €3.5m while Fabio Borini, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Franck Kessié, Ricardo Rodriguez, Mateo Musacchio and Andrea Conti are on €2.5m, €2,5m, €2.2m, €2.1m, €2m and €2m respectively. Riccardo Montolivo will be making €2.5m this year while Ignazio Abate will make €2.3m.
