Cristiano Ronaldo and De Ligt.
Both Sky Italia and the Dutch newspaper 'De Telegraaf' say the Ajax captain will sign a five-year contract. The latter adds that he will have a salary of between 15 and 20 million euros. The new taxation promoted by the Italian government, which aims to attract foreign capital, will allow Juventus to face such a high profile, something that happened last summer with the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Barça has already given up bidding on De Ligt, 19, due to these high economic claims, according to the newspaper 'Marca'. The player wanted to collect at the Camp Nou 12 million euros net per season, which meant an expense for the club of 120 million in those five years only in salary. The global expense between transfer and file was close to 200 million, without counting the commission of its representative, Mino Raiola, who wanted 20% of the transfer.
Very favorable laws
On June 29 a law will be enforced that contemplates a reduced tax, only 30% on taxable income, for citizens who move their residence to Italy as of May 1 and for at least 24 months (without having lived there in the previous 24). The measure will be a great saving for football clubs, which are the ones who pay the taxes derived from the salary of the players.
If until now they had to pay 1.7 million per million in salaries, now that amount will be reduced to 1.15 million. The measures are even more beneficial for companies based in the southern regions, such as the Naples or the Cagliari. In those cases, the reduced tax would be only 10%.
