New Milan signing once called Ibrahimovic a ‘sh*t attacker’ to his face

Considered the biggest and best club in the world by many in the mid 2000s, Italian giants Milan have now worked their way back towards the top of Italian football having spent years languishing near mid-table obscurity.

Like all Serie A clubs, Milan don't have the financial pulling power of the Premier League or Paris Saint-Germain, meaning their ability to attract the best talents isn't as high as others on the continent.

Following consecutive transfer windows of signing older players, Milan have changed their transfer model and have begun hunting for younger talents in order to nurture and mould them into better players down the line.

In the summer of 2021, they club lost their goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, and replaced him with Lille's Mike Maignan. Fikayo Tomori and Sandro Tonali were also signed on permanent deals, with Olivier Giroud providing some experience.

All things considered, their wage bill is far lower than some European clubs, but just how much does each player at Milan earn?

Unsurprisingly, it's Zlatan Ibrahimovic who leads the way in Milan's earnings, with the Swedish superstar earning double that of second place Alessio Romagnoli.

His contract does, however, expire in 2022, and if the club decide not to renew it, then they stand to lose a fair chunk of wages per year.

Club captain Alessandro Romagnoli is tied with Ante Rebic and new signing Giroud on €3.5m per year.

Despite being a key player for the side, Sandro Tonali earns the exact same salary as goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, even though the Romanian made just six league starts during the 2021/22 campaign.

Milan's primary focus will be renewing the deals of those stars who are due to leave for free in 2022.

With a wage bill totalling up to just under €51 million, which is over €10m less than PSG pay just Lionel Messi and Neymar, Milan have operated in a smart manner over the past few years, and are now in a position to challenge once again.
