AC Milan are set to maintain an internal salary threshold in terms of how much each player can be paid, but there will be exceptions to the rule, a report claims.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, there is an internally created salary cap just as there was under Elliott Management, one which is not carved in stone and allows for sporadic and considered exceptions as is happening in the negotiations with Rafael Leao.
Milan will not go beyond a certain threshold when the club deems they have reached it, as happened in the talks with Gianluigi Donnarumma, Hakan Calhanoglu and Franck Kessie previously.
In this sense, Gerry Cardinale spoke to Business Insider about how he likes to run the things he is involved in, stating: “I think my greatest competitive advantage is not being emotionally involved. They are all intellectual property assets that have a legitimate right to be monetised.”
In entrepreneurial terms there will naturally be some doubts about his lack of emotional involvement, but there is also the possibility to make key decisions objectively.
