It has been revealed that AC Milan pay out the fifth-most in gross salary among current Serie A clubs, a report claims, while some bad news has arrived.
Today’s edition of il Corriere dello Sport has taken a look at the total gross salaries (salary before tax) paid out to playing squads, and Milan crack the top five with €90m.
However, they are behind Napoli in fourth (€105m), Roma in third (€112m), Inter in second (€149m) and Juventus in first (€236m).
Meanwhile, on the salary front, La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) have provided some bad news under the following headline: “The tax authorities stop the cuts to the top players. Clubs in turmoil.”
Currently, clubs in Italy save 50% on taxes on foreign players (and Italians returning after two years abroad) who have been registered from summer 2019 onwards, which is obviously a sizeable saving.
As a result of a communication from the Revenue Agency, the benefits are “frozen” until a new Prime Ministerial Decree specifies the procedure for using the funds intended for the youth sectors. The paper questions how Inter will cope with Eriksen and Lukaku, Juventus with Ramsey, Rabiot and De Ligt or Milan with Ibrahimovic.
