AC Milan intends to further lower their wage bill in the summer transfer window as two players will leave and one will take a pay cut.
As our colleagues at SempreMilan.it report, the exits of Frank Kessie and Alessio Romagnoli on free transfers to Barcelona and Lazio respectively will bring a net saving of €8m, therefore gross of a figure that exceeds €10m.
Those two are not the only ones to bring significant savings to the balance sheet though, Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who received €7m net for the 2021-22 season – will sign a new contract until 2023 at around €100k per month and then the second part of the season (when he is back from injury) will be at significantly lower figures than in the previous season too.
Milan could therefore save around €10m in net salary according to the most optimistic forecasts, therefore in the €15-20m region in gross. The salaries of the new signings should be balanced by the cuts relating to the departure of Samu Castillejo, Tiemoue Bakayoko and any other disposals.
