CorSport: Milan save €21m on salaries thanks to Growth Decree – the breakdown

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan were able to make a big saving thanks to the Growth Decree tax relief scheme that the Italian government brought in during recent seasons.

The Italian government introduced the scheme as a way to help clubs lure players from abroad as any non-Italian players signed after 2019 August would enjoy a 50% tax reduction as long as they stayed for two or more years. We have explained more about the Growth Decree here.

As Corriere dello Sport reports (via ACMilanFR), Milan saved a total of €21m in additional salary payments thanks to the Growth Decree, starting with the forward trio of Ante Rebic, Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with a saving of over €2m on each player.

New signing Mike Maignan’s gross salary was only €3.7m when it would have been €4.5m without the scheme, while other notable savings were made on Fikayo Tomori (€1.4m), Theo Hernandez (€3m), Tiemoue Bakayoko (€1.7m), Rafael Leao (€1m) and Alexis Saelemaekers (€1.1m).

We can also see that Ibra’s salary this season was €4m net, and not €7m as was reported by a wide range of sources.

  1. Wait wait wait, so Kessie was offered more than Ibrahimović and he declined? I’m so glad he left, muppet.

    1. Yes lol, Barcelona offered him less than we did. Some bad business on his agents part, and he’s still not a registered Barcelona player because they still don’t have the money to register him

    2. Who is ibrahimovic ? That talkative and arrogant he do nothing other than talking and bragging himself that’s useless not player then comparing him to Kassie is guilty
