Transfermarkt: One Milan player makes it into Serie A’s top 10 earners

By Euan Burns -

There is just one AC Milan player who resides on the list of the 10 highest earners in Serie A right now, with Juventus being the dominant force.

In a list of salaries compiled by Transfermarkt (via Milan News), Rafael Leao is the only Milan star who makes it into the top 10, even though Milan is one of the three biggest clubs in the country without a doubt.

Leao is also not very near the top, as his salary puts him joint-eighth with Romelu Lukaku and Adrien Rabiot, all of whom earn roughly €8 million per season.

The top of the list features Juventus duo Dusan Vlahovic and Wojciech Szczesny, who earn €13m and €12 a season respectively.

Former Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu is third with the €11m a season he earns at Inter, and he has potential bonuses that can take him to €12m.

Milan’s financial woes of the past decade have been clear and this is another way of measuring it. although the situation is improving.

  1. These numbers cannot be players salaries but most likely how much each of them cost their teams per year, taxes and other expenditures included.
    Just like Florenzi is Milan most expensive defender by costing Milan 5.6 mil a season.
    There is no way Inter is paying anyone 11 mil per season. Hakan salary is around 6 mil a year.

  2. I can’t believe Inter are paying Hakan 11mil a year. he’s certainly playing better for them than he did for Milan, but wow. No wonder they are on shaky financial ground. LMAO!!!

  3. “Z” What are you talking about? “These numbers cannot be players salaries ” Player gross salaries, that is the amount the club pays for the players salary. Any business for that matter, if you employed anyone ever you’d know.. The player doesn’t receive that full amount, but that is how much they pay their players, that is the salary. The tax is something that the government takes, clubs do not deduct taxes to calculate how much the pay their players….?

  4. Well I’d have to agree with Z here.
    It clearly states “10 highest earners”

    They don’t earn that amount, so why list it like this?

  5. “They don’t earn that amount, so why list it like this?”

    They do earn but you know this thing called TAXES means they won’t get the whole sum on their bank accounts. When people talk about “how much someone earns”, they mean the sum before the taxes. For some strange reason they do use net salaries when talking about Italian sports – unlike e.g. UK where the salaries are always gross (as in every other field of profession).
