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.

Juventus is the club in Italy that pays the most to its players, as €164m will be spent by them in this campaign on salaries. As mentioned, Milan are in 2nd place with €117m, while Roma are 3rd (€91m), Inter are 4th (€82m) and Napoli are 5th (€81m). In total, Serie A clubs will be spending €955m on salaries, which is €28m more than last year and €73m more than two years ago, Gazzetta claims.

Bonucci and Gonzalo Higuain will be making the most money this year, €7.5m. After them comes Paulo Dybala with €7m and then it’s Donnarumma and Douglas Costa with €6m. Juve also have two of the best-paid midfielders: Sami Khedira (€4m) and Miralem Pjanic (€4.5m). Mauro Icardi is the best-paid Inter player with a salary of €4.5m while Lorenzo Insigne makes the most at Napoli – €3.6m.

In the coaches department, Massimiliano Allegri is ahead of everyone as the Old Lady are paying the former Milan boss €7m per season. Inter’s Luciano Spalletti is in second place with a contract worth €4m per season while Montella is in third, and he will be earning €3m after taxes this year.

The top coaches outside of Serie A are making a lot more as Pep Guardiola is on €18m per season at Manchester City while Jose Mourinho will make €16m net from his Manchester United position, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s data. Carlo Ancelotti, meanwhile, will be earning €12m at Bayern Munich. Allegri may be best-paid in Italy but is ‘only’ the 10th best-paid coach in Europe.

I will stop bashing underperforming new players and will praise fasobelli as best sporting directors of all time, if Borini becomes a great player.

This is a far cry from when b&g were running things. The wage bill was over 200 mil and the team sucked.
Well done Fassobeli.

Borini (and Free kick kid, and Kalinic) earns more than Bonaventura, Musacchio, Romagnoli, Rodriguez, Suso (who will probably earn more in new contract — hopefully more than Borini).
Bravo.

I guess a part of it is because he came from EPL, land of absurd wages. But his signing disappointed me in the first place. I haven’t even seen anything good in him so far

We shouldn’t dwell on this too much. What matters is what happens on the field. This news is like gossip.

Suso should swap wages with Borini for the meantime before signing the new contract. For Antonio I understand he’s receiving that 1 mil from his brothers 7mil. After his performances for Milan Bertolacci should be ashamed of still receiving that much!

hope Suso sign 3-3.5m/y contract asap, it’s just real pain to know A. Dona 1m, Kalinic 3.5m & Borini 2.5(+1m paid by Pool, if we take option to buy next season will be 3.5m full by Milan), Monty 2.5m, both Sosa & Mauri 1.5m, really?
hope the new comers prove their worth, dead weight leave next summer (or paid less) & wonderkids get rise…
i guess Juve is waiting for Suso, Loca, Cutrone, Calabria to spend current contract then get them for free…

Borini paid more than Suso and Suso negotiating for at least €3,5m a season and they only wanna give him €3m. And then there’s Jack, who is earning less than Borini. It’s just a joke.

Lets put this in mind that we still should be looking for big players those can fit into the various positions that look to be little bit liking striker, midfielder and a player who can dribble two or three players into the box
