Milan are said to be paying €90 million on salaries this season, which makes them the club that spends the most after Juventus, Inter, Roma and Napoli. Zlatan Ibrahimović, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Alessio Romagnoli are paid the highest.

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 Saturday and Milan are in 5th place in terms of spending money on salaries with €90m – before taxes – to be earned by players in this term. This represents a decrease from last year’s €115m.

The highest paid Milan player is 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimović, who extended his deal with the Diavolo for one more season after transforming the squad following his arrival in January. Zlatan makes €7 million net for this season, according to this morning’s La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Gianluigi Donnarumma is the second best-paid player, with a net salary of €6m. However his salary may soon change as the Rossoneri are in talks with agent Mino Raiola over the extension of the player’s contract. After Donnarumma, come Captain Alessio Romagnoli and Ante Rebić, who became a Milan player on a permanent basis this summer, with net salaries of €3.5m.

From the new signings, Sandro Tonali makes the most money with a salary of €2 million, while Ciprian Tătăruşanu makes €1.2m. Diogo Dalot and Jens Petter Hauge make €1 million, Pierre Kalulu is on €600k for the season – making even more than Brahim Díaz, who is at Milan on loan from Real Madrid and will get €500k for his efforts in Red & Black. The least-paid players in the squad of Stefano Pioli are 18-year-olds Lorenzo Colombo and Daniel Maldini.

wow, brahim diaz looks like an extremely lucrative bargain. permanent his ass asap please maldini.
also, as expected, both donna’s and hakakan kakanoglu’s are acting out demanding high figures for their clients. not their fault, they’re just doing their job but whats with milan and their stupid way of handling players contract extension situation way too close to its expiration date? donna in 2016, ibra, and now these 2 key players. next time try to close the deal way sooner, far from the expiration date so milan will have more bargaining power, starting with kessie and ben.

I agree we have been completely arrogant in the approach of renewing contracts maybe not so much in hakans case as with donnarummas because his quality has been extreme in the last year but before that it could have been in the cards that he could have left the club. Donnarumma though should have had his contract renewed minimum a year ago.


correctamundo mate. donna contract should’ve been extended 1-2 yrs ago at least. as for hakan, he literally begged milan to let him stay just a year ago when he was still struggling playing as lw. milan should’ve extended right then and there. im very much against 2,5m salary cap nazidis is trying to impose but there should be a clear ceiling, say 4-5m. 8m salary with 30m release clause is total joke. like i said: high salary AND low release clause, thats double wrong. i hope milan wont have this nonsense again during ben’s and kessie’s contract negotiations in near… Read more »

Yeah i get that it woulkd have cost us far less if we had renewed back then but at that point propably over 50% of all milan fans would have wanted that was shipped out. Now though he has been playing like a star and i can even look through that i dont like him as long as he perfoms that is. Yeah raiola is a freaking clown and regardless of how bad it is to wish someone ill fortune i gotta say i’ll look forward to the day he is out of the sport one way or the other.… Read more »

Not to be a complete moron to anyone on this blog but please do remember this part above the next time people want to postulate that daniel maldini earns 1.7 mil a year


Exactly what I wanted to say.


“Not to be a complete moron to anyone on this blog” u could’ve just written “TONITE ON MARTIN SAID” mate *wink

Martin Bernhard

Hahahaha i wasnt really hinting at you to be fair but now you say it you do sometimes behave like one 😛 just quit calling our right wing saladmaker and our coach john malkovic then im generally fine with your comments 😀


Just look at ATALANTA… Low budget but improved play on the pitch


We are not atalanta we don’t need to follow them we should have much higher wage then atalanta.
