The Italian Government is reportedly ready to amend the rules and cancel Growth Decree, to stop the distortion of the transfer market and help the Italian players.
The politicians in Italy decide the fate of Italian football in these hours, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Growth Decree was approved in 2019, to facilitate the signings of superstars in Serie A. Instead, the report claims it turned out to be a real ‘distortion’ of the market that only penalised Italian players.
It became much more advantageous to buy a foreign footballer, given the possibility to save 50 per cent of the salary due to the new fiscal rules and tax discount.
The new rules made calcio a tax haven for foreign talent and had concrete effects on the clubs’ budgets and balance sheets.
But the government is discussing if the rule strongly penalises Italian footballers, especially looking at the youngsters coming through the academies in Italy.
