Football Italian is in trouble, as a growing number of Serie A clubs are suffering from financial problems.
It was already difficult to keep the league afloat after a disastrous start to the season.
Many clubs have been struggling to make ends meet in the new financial year, and in the face of that, the league’s board is proposing to raise the salary cap for next season by 5 million euros.
According to a report from The Daily Mail, the proposals will cost the league 1.6 billion euros, with the money raised from the proposed increases going towards the wages of all professional players, as well as the salary and bonuses of coaches and referees.
This will be the highest salary cap in the country, but the league already has the highest wage bill in the game, having earned the equivalent of 2.5 billion euros in 2017.
There have been attempts to reduce the amount of money spent on the salaries of referees and coaches, and the clubs have reacted in one way or another.
Juventus, Fiorentina, Lazio and Lazio have all proposed to reduce their salary caps by 15 percent, while Sampdoria have also suggested cutting their salary by 2 percent, although the move is expected to fail.
The proposed cuts are already causing problems for the clubs in terms of players and finances.
With the salary caps currently being raised to 1.8 billion euros per season, it is unclear whether this will be enough to ensure the future of the league.
The Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations stipulate that any clubs who lose money cannot be allowed to compete in the next three years, with Serie A losing the right to participate in the European competition for the first time since 2011.
This is because of a loophole in the rule, whereby clubs are allowed to play in the Champions League and Europa League, but cannot compete in other competitions.
The rules also state that a club can have a loan, a non-player player loan or a player-in-waiting loan, but not a non player player loan.
In addition, the rules also prohibit any club from signing a player from another club without the club’s consent.
The proposals from the board of clubs come after a difficult season for the Serie A. In January, Juventus announced the resignation of coach Maurizio Sarri, who had led the club to the Serie B title in his first season, following the financial crisis.
In the past year, the Rossoneri were also relegated from the top of the table, while Fiorence Grifone finished fourth.
This followed a poor start to this season, with Sampdori failing to qualify for the Champions of Europe, as they did not qualify for Europe through the Europa League.
Despite the difficulties facing the Serie L clubs, the board has managed to remain optimistic.
The board is now calling for an extension of the current financial year until the end of June, and for all the clubs to raise their salaries in 2018.
It is likely that the board will raise the salaries by around 5 million, with that amount being split evenly between the clubs.
This would mean the increase would amount to around 6 million euros per club.
With this in mind, the club will need to invest in the squad to make it competitive again, which will be difficult considering the salary increases.
Furthermore, it will be very difficult to maintain a competitive football squad given the financial problems facing the clubs that have been forced to cut wages in order to survive.
As a result, the clubs will be struggling to survive and are looking to recruit new players, with many of the players likely to move abroad in the summer.
There are also many questions surrounding the proposed wage cap, as the proposed cuts could cost the clubs financially in the long term.
It remains to be seen whether the board’s proposals will be approved by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), which is currently looking into the proposed reforms.
