He became an important part in the success of the Rossoneri winning one Serie A title, one Coppa Italia, one Italian Super Cup, one Champions League and one European Super Cup. Until now, he is still considered the number 10 best player in football history.
2. Filippo Inzaghi – 36 million euros (Rp 536 billion)
Inzaghi is one of Milan’s best strikers. Despite having no advantage in terms of skill, Inzaghi proved almost always able to score goals in important moments, one of which is in the Champions League final 2006/2007.

In addition to the Champions League trophies 2002/2003 and 2006/2007, he also contributed two Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia, two Italian Super Cups, and one Club World Cup. Inzaghi continues with Milan until retiring at the end of the 2011/2012 season.

Nesta is one of the best purchases Milan have ever made. He was recruited from Lazio in the summer of 2002. His name was soaring thanks to his success that Lazio won one Serie A trophy, two Coppa Italia, two Italian Super Cups, one Cup Winners Cup and one European Super Cup.
His role in the heart of defense is considered very perfect. Not a few who call it the best central defender of all time. He has the advantage in terms of physical, speed, and passing a good for the size of the defender.
His ability was often compared with the former captain of Milan, Franco Baresi. During the Milan costume, he played 326 matches in all competitions. The contribution is the same as what Inzaghi awarded for AC Milan.
