The gap between AC Milan and rivals Inter in terms of revenue generated is widening by the year, according to a report.
As Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport notes (via MilanLive.it), Inter surpassed Milan in turnover in the 2015-16 season and has now taken flight. The Nerazzurri went from just €179m in 2015 to the current €365m in revenue.
On the contrary, Milan are in continuous descent. The turnover record of 2012-2013 (€264million) now seems far away. After the sale to Yonghong Li and then investment fund Elliott Management seizing control, Milan now stand at around €200m. Milan have even dropped out of the top 20 European clubs for turnover.
A big difference between the two clubs, which also speaks volumes about the results of the field. It is no coincidence that the Nerazzurri are now fighting for the Scudetto and can afford to buy players like Eriksen, Young and Moses in January. While Milan, Ibrahimovic aside, have been forced to sell.
