Inter will pay Henrikh Mkhitaryan a total of €4.9 million per season in gross wages for the duration of his two-year contract with the club.

This according to Italian football finance news outlet Calcio e Finanza, who report that the Armenian will earn €3.8 million net per season but that the gross amount will only be a little over €1 million more than that due to the Growth Decree.

The Nerazzurri will be able to apply the tax benefits of the Growth Decree in paying the wages of Mkhitaryan, a significant financial benefit for the club as far as their target to reduce the wage bill going into next season.

The 33-year-old has accepted an offer that will see him earn €3.8 million net per season, with the amount enough to convince him to reject the late improved contract extension offer made by his current club Roma to make the switch to the Nerazzurri.
