The growth decree is a financial measure that allows Serie A to save about 50% in taxes compared to the actual salary of foreign players. Initially, it will be extended until the end of February to create conditions for clubs to shop in the winter transfer window.
However, recently, according to sources from ANSA, The Italian government decided to shorten the period of the Growth Decree, all repealed after December 31, 2023.. This action makes Serie A clubs unable to keep up because their salary budget will increase significantly.
Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan or AS Roma all have important foreign stars in their squad. The attractiveness of Serie A in the future is also affected because clubs cannot afford the salaries of top players and coaches.
If nothing changes in the coming days, Serie A will face a mass exodus of big stars. Now, they have nothing left to put on the table with the Premier League or Spain when negotiating transfers.
