AC Milan are set to make a huge saving on their balance sheet from the departure of midfielder Lucas Biglia this summer, a report has revealed.
As Calcio e Finanza report (via MilanLive), Biglia joined Milan in the summer of 2017 from Lazio for €19.2million, plus a €500k bonus. When factoring in his three-year contract, his amortisation cost is currently at €6.76m.
Mirabelli was the one who strongly pushed for the signing of the regista to finish off a summer window that had seen the likes of Franck Kessie, Andrea Silva, Leonardo Bonucci and Nikola Kalinic arrive.
Needless to say, the idea failed miserably given that the Argentine suffered injury after injury and became widely labelled as a ‘flop’.
To the €6.76million amortisation costs must be added the salary, among the highest in the whole squad at €3.5million net, almost €7million. The total cost on the balance sheet is therefore €13.24million. In short, a very important figure, the highest of all.
For this reason, his farewell allows Milan to save a lot of money that could be reinvested in other players.
