AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani admits there will be wage cuts with no Champions League football next season.
Galliani says all player contracts include clauses which mean salary reductions if a top four finish is not achieved.
"Kaka said that at the end of the season he will come to me to talk about a wage reduction? There is nothing to add," Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Almost all the players have signed a contract that provides for an 80 per cent fixed salary and a 20 per cent variable, relating to the qualification or not to the Champions League. Not to the Europa League.
"So, there are no discussion about it. And I guarantee that all the players will survive "
