Calcio and cash! From Torino to the San Siro and beyond, find out who stands alone atop the Serie A salary mountain this season in Italian football.
Remember when Serie A was the center of soccer universe? Before the Premier League was first consumed by ownership groups backed by unprecedented mega-billions in the aughts, Italian football — calcio, beg your pardon — was home to legends like Ronaldo (the thicc one), Batistuta, Maldini, Baggio, and Zidane.
The balance of power has shifted over the past 15-20 years to say the least, but the star power still surges and Italy’s top flight remains home to many of the impact players on its national team that won continental gold at Euro 2020. That got us thinking, however, about one big question: In a sport increasingly dominated by those mega-billions, who owns the distinction of being this season’s biggest earner among the Boot’s finest clubs?
Let’s dive into Boardroom’s full ranking of the highest-paid players in Serie A for the 2023-24 campaign below.
