Tonali Set for Huge Pay Rise, In Line to Return Against Atalanta

Sandro Tonali is back. The Brescia youth product sustained a flexor injury during Milan’s friendly against Vicenza, but now has recovered fully, and is in line to return to playing ways against Atalanta. However, the return to full health is not the only good news coming the youngster’s way. The Rossoneri want to reward Tonali for his commitment to the club by doubling his paycheck, as per Calciomercato.

Negotiations are currently taking place between the Rossoneri management and the player’s entourage. With his present contract expiring in 2026, Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara want to offer him an additional one or two years, with a salary rise to approximately €3M net per season including add-ons and bonuses – a substantial increase from his current wages of €1.2M.

Tonali had earlier taken a huge paycut in order to stay put at San Siro, helping the Rossoneri offset financial woes. Understandably, Milan want to reward the 22-year-old by making him the center of the club’s project going forward.

The midfield talent is set to take the field in Bergamo, when Milan take on Atalanta in their second match of the new Serie A season.
