Revealed: How Milan have covered five signings for this year with Cutrone sale

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have already covered the five purchases made in the current mercato for this fiscal year by selling Patrick Cutrone, it has been revealed.

The Rossoneri have made a number of signings already this summer: namely Theo Hernandez from Real Madrid, Rade Krunic from Empoli, Rafael Leao from Lille and Ismael Bennacer – also from Empoli.

Leo Duarte has also joined from Flamengo with his announcement imminent, while Milan are still hard at work in the mercato.

As MilanNews.it report, Milan have spent €90m this summer so far on the aforementioned quintet of players.

Due to the fact that each of them has signed a five-year deal with the club, their value is amortised over that period meaning the value on this year’s balance sheet is just €18m (€90m divided by the five years).

This, consequently, is an amount that has already been covered by Cutrone’s sale to Premier League side Wolves, as that counts as a pure capital gain due to the fact he cost nothing.
