Financial Fair Play will soon be overhauled and it is bad news for all clubs in Serie A except for AC Milan and Atalanta, according to reports.
The New York Times (via MilanNews) reported that there will be several updates on how FFP operates but one of them will not be a salary cap. Instead, the new major parameter will be based on revenues and personnel costs – which will be calculated based on the cost of the squad, transfer fees, salaries and other expenses – which for clubs involved in UEFA competitions cannot exceed 70% of total revenues.
MilanNews writes how these regulations are good news for the English clubs who make so much more in revenue, while they are penalising to the most indebted clubs, starting with Real Madrid and Barcelona in Spain but also Juventus and Inter in Serie A.
The report cites Alessandro Giudice – who often takes care of studying football budgets for il Corriere dello Sport – in stating that only Milan and Atalanta would be safe at the moment in Italy with regards to the new 70% rule.
This means that the Super League project is increasingly topical and we could see more and more concrete rumblings about it formally relaunching.
