The cost of AC Milan’s squad has increased by a relatively small amount compared to the 2022-23 campaign, a report has revealed.
According to Calcio e Finanza, the increase in squad cast in 2023-24 is €6m compared to last season, and it is worth noting that data for the past season was updated in June, in order to be the most as close to reality as possible.
To estimate the impact on the players’ accounts, gross salaries (when paid by Milan) and the amortisation fee for each individual player is taken into account. It is worth adding that no players were signed on loan.
The figures show that the club’s squad will cost just over €150m this year, barring any adjustments in the January transfer window which could affect the figures considered. The total figure is slightly up compared to last season, mainly as a result of the 10 summer signings.
However, it is up by only €6m because the club managed to offload Sergino Dest, Ante Rebic and Sandro Tonali among others, who were high earners. Marco Brescianini, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ciprian Tatarusanu also left, as did Divock Origi, Charles DeKetelaere and Junior Messias.
On the signing front, however, several players arrived on permanent deals. Christian Pulisic has the highest cost (again, this is gross salary plus fee amortisation for this season), with Samuel Chukwueze and Ruben Loftus-Cheek completing the podium.
