2022-23 AC Milan Salaries & Contracts Breakdown

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Who’s the highest-paid player at the San Siro this season? Boardroom dives into the details of all the AC Milan salaries currently on the books.

AC Milan have a history of offering players high salaries, but at the same time, have been conservative in their approach to spending in the transfer market, resulting in a mixed track record. In the past, the Italian club was known for a high-roller approach in the market, notably during the ownership of the controversial Silvio Berlusconi — also known as Italy’s three-time Prime Minister. During this time, the Milanisti club signed some of the biggest names in world football from Ronaldo (C9) to Ronaldinho to Zlatan Ibrahimović.

However in recent years, AC Milan have adopted a more conservative approach to transfer spending due to financial constraints. Like many other top clubs across Europe and Serie A, Milan’s revenue was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, the Rossoneri have developed a new focus on signing young and promising players, and loaning players to help strengthen the squad without incurring high costs.

AC Milan’s performances last season earned them a berth in this year’s UEFA Champions League. Their strong showing in the group stages this season resulted in qualification to the knockout rounds. They have advanced to the quarterfinals, confirming the team’s continued growth and competitiveness. With or without financial backing, the club, under the management of Stefano Pioli, continues to show its desire for sustained success, whether big or small.

Who are the San Siro heroes responsible for keeping AC Milan competitive after budget cuts? Let’s dive into the 2022-23 AC Milan salaries currently on the books.
