FIFA expected to approve changes to loan rules – where Milan currently stand

By Oliver Fisher -

News has arrived regarding the official new FIFA regulations with regards to loan deals that clubs must adhere to from July 1 onwards.

MilanLive report how the changes should be officially announced after the next board of directors meeting and the rules are expected to come into full effect on 1 July, with more stringent procedures on loan players.

The first rule that changes concerns the duration of loans, which will be a maximum of one year. Therefore, two-year loans like the Brahim Diaz and Tiemoue Bakayoko ones will no longer be allowed.

There will also be an upper limit of players on loan between two clubs (3) and also out on loan in general (8). On this last point, a transition period will be implemented for the duration of the entirety of next season. The following year (2023-24) it will drop to 7 and then the maximum limit of 6 will be reached. Under 21s are excluded from all these limitations.

SportMediaset report that Atalanta are in the most trouble currently as they currently have 31 players on loan, excluding the U21 players. Genoa (20) and Lazio (17) also have some adapting to do.

There is no problem at the moment for Milan, who have 8 players on loan. The situation must be monitored because the Rossoneri have many U21s on loan, who could soon exceed maximum age and would be put back within the parameters, like Lorenzo Colombo and Luan Capanni.
