GdS: Details of the salary cap Elliott want to implement – Ibrahimovic a possible exception

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s intention is to impose a salary cap this summer, a report claims, but there will be certain exceptions to the rule.

Speculation has been rife in the media recently claiming that the intentions of Elliott Management are to slash the wage bill this summer.

The club spent €140million gross on salaries in the 2018-19 season (the second highest in Serie A after Juventus) and even the €115m in 2019-2020.

The future of players like Gianluigi Donnarumma (€6m-a-year), Alessio Romagnoli (€3.5m) and Hakan Calhanoglu (€2.5m) will have to be assessed, especially given their contract situations.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, Milan are indeed hoping to implement a limit to the amount each player makes in terms of wages.

The journalist believes that the vast majority of the squad will be on a salary of €2-2.5m per year, however there will be two or three exceptions to that rule.

One of those exceptions could be Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a player that CEO Ivan Gazidis values highly, but ultimately any renewal will be down to the will of the Swede.
