GdS: Elliott Management stand firm on Milan’s wage cap but will make two exceptions

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan’s owners Elliott Management are standing firm on their desire to bring down the wage budget, a report claims, but they will make two exceptions.

The American fund have concocted the recipe for returning to the top, and that it contains structural investments (such as the stadium project) and the consolidation of accounts.

For example, the wage bill has been slashed considerably from €140m when they took over the club to the current €90m – as per a recent edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – while the balance on the market is back in the green after six years (+25.3m in 2020-21).

However, the issue of the wage budget is set to come back into fashion as several contract situations need resolving. The same paper (via MilanNews) confirms that the will of the owners is to contain the costs of renewals with two exceptions; namely Gigio Donnarumma and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. For this reason, Elliott do not intend to exceed €4m net per season for Calhanoglu.

    Does this mean the possibility of renewal of Donaroma?

    This is bad, doing it for two what will the rest think,this partiality may hurt others feelings and could bring the unity of the squad apart.
    Gigio getting 10m,Zlatan 7m because their agent is greedy then Hakan too deserve the 5m he want because he is equally good us the two and henceforth all the agents will demand more when their players contract runs down.

    We should sell Donnaruma. You can’t treat only two players specially, all our players should earn what they deserve.

    Then you should as well place Kessie on that exclusive list, pay him 8m, yeah, he deserves it.

    By the way, in eventuality of Champions League qualification, I haven’t heard we seriously linked to real goal scorer.
    We crashed out of the Europa League because we couldn’t score goals, we could have won the first leg 3-1 and also won the return leg 2-1 if we had a real goal scorer. Without proper investment in the CF department, we ain’t going nowhere.

    Get us, one proper:
    CF
    RW
    CM
    CB

      CF- ZLATAN
      RW-?
      CM-KESSIE/BENNACER
      CB-TOMORI/KJAER.

      ONLY RW IMO

      1. JOHN THE BAPTIST says:

        CF – Zlatan, are u serious? He can’t play multiple games, we definitely need a CF so badly. Icardi or maybe Belotti will be ok.

        RW – Tick

        CM – Seeing how badly we missed Bennacer, we ain’t winning nothing without an adequate cover. Meite is ok, but nothing special, Tonali is ok, but needs time, a strong CM in place of Meite I suppose.

        CB – Well, we can still cope with the right instructions from the coach.
