There'll be no transfer cost alright but on the other side of the coin, he's likely to ask for a big salary AND quite a long contract seeing that's probably his last chance of getting a lucrative deal. So, let's assume we match the salary he asked and the contract runs for 3 years. That's (7,5 salary + 7,5 tax) x 3 = € 45 million!
Ok so now that everyone has clarified about the tax code, sorry Nalx, this post is wrong. The tax is 50% not 100%. If a player has a salary of €7.5 Million, then the tax would be €3.75 Million. That's bad, but not nearly AS bad.

Anyways, regarding the stadium, I too hope Milan can build their own stadium. 60-70,000 seats capacity, modern technology, and we will pack the stadium! I've heard that Moratti may have wanted to buy his own stadium. It's a very expensive project, and took Juventus years to get done...
