AC Milan have set an internal salary ceiling that they do not want to go above when it comes to the contracts of players, a report claims.
Ever since American fund Elliott Management took over the club and installed Ivan Gazidis as the CEO, the focus has been on bringing down the wage bill by focusing more on young and talented players that can grow and form the basis of the side for years to come.
As part of that, there have been reports that the management have set a maximum net salary per year that they are willing to pay players, and now another report has emerged claiming so.
According to this morning’s La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan are aiming to bolster the squad and renew key players but without going beyond certain figures.
The delicate moment football is going through from an economic standpoint means Milan’s idea is to have a ceiling in salary terms set at €4m net per year, with only two exceptions: Gianluigi Donnarumma and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
