Marca: Milan in talks with Barcelona over Coutinho and could benefit from tax scheme

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are interested in signing Philippe Coutinho as Hakan Calhanoglu’s replacement and may have a fix for the salary problem, a report claims.

According to the latest from Marca (via PianetaMilan), Milan would like to sign the Brazilian attacking midfielder for the number 10 role, even though he has been out since December with a knee injury. The Rossoneri are working with the Barcelona management to find the most suitable formula for the transfer.

The salary received by the former Inter and Liverpool star is prohibitive, but there is a possible solution to this. Milan have an advantage over the other clubs interested in Coutinho due to the better tax conditions in force.

A foreign player who moves to Italy and moves his tax residence to the country enjoys the Growth Decree scheme, which essentially means that they are taxed lower on the income that they earn and therefore keep more for their own pocket, while the club has less gross expenditure too.

      1. well is your dad gonna pay for his wages.?
        also did you see him at Barca. Freaking Injury prone player on a 12M salary package and is past his prime. Dumbshit

  1. Krunic is the ideal Calhanoglu replacement. Maldini as his deputy. Colombo is the young striker who should lead the attack when Ibra leaves at the end of his contract 💪💪

  2. I sometimes wonder, when we are dealing with players that are going to want a very high salary: try to have them take some of the financial risk also so all interests are aligned. an example a player is requesting 6 m = offer 5 m and 2m extra if we reach champions league. So if we don’t reach champions league next year, the players share the financial burden with us but if we reach it then we can pay the all star players that bit extra without a problem :Þ

  3. Milan need to sign high profile players to keep the sponsors happy, also enhance experience depth in the team.

  4. With a good coach like poli I think they will do fine next season. Remember Milan have a financial problem and there try to manage the one they have
