Reports: FFP overhaul bad news for Juventus and Inter – Milan and Atalanta can breathe easily

By Oliver Fisher -

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.

  1. It will be interesting to see how juventus will make any moves this summer.

    info below from wikipedia in regard of chiesas and vlahovics deals

    On 5 October 2020, Chiesa signed a two-year loan deal with Juventus; a €3 million loan for the first season and a €7 million loan for the second season, with a conditional obligation to buy for €40 million plus €10 million in variables

    On 28 January 2022, on the day of his 22nd birthday, Vlahović signed for Juventus on a four-and-a-half-year contract; the deal was worth €70 million, plus €10 million in performance-related bonuses

    It would seem like joventus alreqdy has spend its cash for the summer.

  2. If Milan win the scudetto this season, this will only prove to the rest of Italy that Milans model works and is sustainable.

    It will go to prove that having sustainable finances can work and you shouldn’t spend above your means and fo into debt.

    I see this as a win for Milan and a slap in the face for Inter and Juve.
