The full list of Milan's wage bill for the 2020/21 campaign has been released, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic has come out as the club's highest paid player, on a deal worth €7m a year.

I Rossoneri have actively aimed to cut their huge spending on salaries this summer, and they have successfully shifted €25m per year, leaving them with a total annual spend of €90m.

And a big chunk of that figure - €7m to be exact - has been attributed to the yearly wage of Swedish superstar Ibrahimovic. Now 39 years of age, the experienced forward has extended his stay in Milan for another year, having spent the second half of last season leading the line for Stefano Pioli's side.

There were a lot of rumours surrounding the former Manchester United striker's future with I Rossoneri, and at one point he had been expected to end his time with the Italian giants in the summer. But the pair eventually came to an agreement, tying Ibrahimovic down for the upcoming campaign, and making him the top earner in the process.

Behind the veteran is the youthful Gianluigi Donnarumma, who earns €6m a year keeping clean sheets for his boyhood club. The 21-year-old's brother Antonio is also on the books, picking up €1m a year as a backup shot-stopper.

The third highest paid player is prolific striker Ante Rebic, who earns significantly less than the top two, with €3.5m a year. He is joined on that figure by club captain Alessio Romagnoli, while Hakan Calhanoglu comes in fourth place on an annual €2.5m.

New signing Sandro Tonali has received a wage of €2m, while last season's standout performer Theo Hernandez only takes home €1.5m.
