Milan to Reward Players for Scudetto with Lavish Bonus

The Milan players will have one further motivation in Sunday’s Scudetto deciding game versus Sassuolo. The club has set a considerable bonus if they won. Each footballer will get around €200k if they took home the title. The total pool will amount to nearly €5M, La Repubblica informs.

It has been a busy week also off the pitch for the Rossoneri. Their top directors Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara have agreed on principle to their new contracts to continue managing the club. Their extensions will be announced shortly after the end of the season. The whole front office, including CEO Ivan Gazidis and Gordon Singer, the son of the Elliott chairman, displayed their unity on the San Siro stands in the most recent match against Atalanta.

Milan winning the Scudetto, or not, could impact the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic too. The striker has barely featured down the stretch, even though he was technically available, as his left knee continues to be sore. Another surgery would knock him out for multiple months. According to the publication, the brass has prepared two contracts for him, one if he kept playing and the other if he retired and joined the management. The veteran striker reportedly negotiated the title prizes alongside Davide Calabria and Alessio Romagnoli.

Instead, things have slowed down on the takeover front, Corriere dello Sport informs. Elliott might stay at the helm because the proposal by Investcorp has some weaknesses. In particularly, they are struggling to find the minority shareholders they were looking for. They have offered stakes to a few rich families in the Persian Gulf, with no takers yet. The current owners will not do the deal without being 100 percent certain. And the talks with the other suitors, RedBird Capital, are in their early stages.
