Off the pitch, AC Milan have been heavily loss-making in the past few seasons, recording a whopping €168.3 million loss for last year, but on the pitch the Italian club are currently leading the Serie A with Napoli in third not far behind.

Not much separates the two sides in terms of turnover with Napoli's coming in at €190.2 million in the 2018/19 season compared to AC Milan's €143.6 million last year, a period heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Over the past five years, AC Milan have recorded a profit on player sales of €62.9, bested by Napoli who booked €200.5 million even discounting last season as they have yet to release their accounts.
