GdS: Milan have accumulated over €35m in ‘treasure’ to add to summer transfer budget

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will have accrued a substantial ‘treasure trove’ by the time the summer market reopens, a report claims, one they started building in January.

According to Tuesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) the Rossoneri have raised a sum to be reinvested to strengthen the squad during the summer.

An amount of just under €30million is already virtually in the club’s coffers and is an excellent starting point for the market to come.

The paper adds that in the coming months there will be further cash raised to the tune of €35.6million, coming from wages saved mostly. In the last market in January, Milan lightened their wage budget substantially as Kris Piatek (€1.8m), Suso and Pepe Reina (€3m), Fabio Borini (€2.5m), Mattia Caldara (€2.2m) and Ricardo Rodriguez (€2.1m) all departed. In gross terms they make €25.9m in total.

This will increase even further as soon as the seasons ends, with Lucas Biglia and Giacomo Bonaventura also set to depart when their deals expire. Another €9.7m in gross savings can be added: €3.5m for the salary of the Italian and €6.2m for that of the Argentine, making a total of €35.6m.
