Milan’s wage commitments slightly increase after January transfer window – report

By Oliver Fisher -

The window shut at 20:00 CET yesterday, with the Milan management no doubt relieved to have got their business done early, but at what cost did it come? 

We have written a financial breakdown of how much Milan’s January market should cost based on figures circulating, while MilanLive have analysed the impact on the wage budget.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara reinforced Stefano Pioli’s attack, midfield and defence by signing Mario Mandzukic on a free transfer, Souhailo Meité from Torino on loan with option, and Fikayo Tomori on the same terms.

Looking at the wage bill, the source claims that the three players will cost €2.9million net. Mandzukic will receive €1.8m salary for six months, while Meité and Tomori will be satisfied with €550k (Chelsea will cover some of the expenses for the defender).

In terms of outgoings, Andrea Conti went on loan to Parma with obligation to buy if they stay up, while Mateo Musacchio signed permanently with Lazio. Leo Duarte left for Istanbul Basaksehir on loan with option, and Lorenzo Colombo went on a dry loan to Cremonese.

The three major departures will save Milan exactly €2.5million for the remaining six months of the current season, therefore the wage budget has gone up by about €0.4m.
