A change to the rules regarding Financial Fair Play is expected as discussions will be held by UEFA in the coming days, a report claims.
The Times (via MilanNews) writes how between 9 and 10 September, the new rules for Financial Fair Play will be discussed in Nyon. The main change is expected to be that clubs will be able to spend a maximum of 65-70% of revenues on salaries, agents and the transfer market. A penalty defined as a luxury tax will be applied to offenders, which will be automatic and will end up in a fund to be redistributed to compliant clubs.
The newspaper actually questions what effect such a change may have, as it could serve to simply exacerbate the imbalance of forces that already benefits the Premier League and clubs controlled by states, such as PSG and Manchester City.
The new FFP rules ‘could legitimise the production of creative revenues, rather than fight them’ as clubs look for loopholes to avoid paying more than they have to.
