The club pays these taxes afaik. The players don't give a fuck about the taxes as long as they receive their full net wage.
I mean it discourages other Serie A clubs from going after them, which is the same thing. It just puts them at a disadvantage over players outside Serie A.

My only issue with Calabria is the injury concerns. Every few weeks he has a niggling problem. I can't even blame this on international break - top players are expected to be able to manage this workload.

Kalulu though is proving to be capable at all positions along the back and if he becomes a starter in the future then so be it. Great problem to have. They are both excellent in my book.

Gattuso called him an old man because how his body treated him.

Uli Hoeness taking it to PSG 😀
Is Nasser Al Khelaïfi the new Uli Hoeness? A question that provoked a rather annoyed response from the former Bayern president, star of a podcast about his life: "No, I don't think so. I don't even know if he likes football. The difference between me and him? worked hard, he got the money as a gift. So far he hasn't won anything, like Manchester City. Only national titles. In Europe they have failed and they will lose again against us. Not always, but from time to time. And this must be our goal. Whenever we win against them, I will be happy. This is what motivates me: to prove that their shitty money is not enough. PSG plans for a year, it is not my universe. I see things from an economic point of view: I do not invest all my share right away, to receive compliments in immediate and then leave problems. When making decisions, we need to make sure we have room in three or four years, that it doesn't collapse all of a sudden. To achieve this, I am also willing to lose some trophies. When you've won 60 titles like me, it's not important to always win. Franz Beckenbauer, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and I are so covered with titles that we can afford to put the club's future ahead of business when we make a decision. "

It's really a shame because he has broken in, become captain and should become a fixture there as well with a long run of matches.

Can only hope it improves and he can resolve any issues in prep, diet etc to allow him more availability.

Yeah, Conti would've been sold by now to Genoa/Samp if they had a way to pay less in wages. It really sucks that Parma got relegated. Imagine getting 8 m for such a terrible player. Would've been a masterclass...

I find it interesting that Abramovich doesn't get lumped in with City and PSG. The Glazers catch more shit than he does, but that's probably just the by-product of winning.

I also find it funny to hear Mr. Uli talking about ethics and shitty methods of handling money when he went to jail for over 28m in tax evasion.

Good deal imo. Guy improved over course of his season with us and was able to play multiple positions. Though idk how he's doing this season
Few time i watched him for ManU i was glad Paolo decided to go in another direction

Definitely not worth the 16 m

Abramovich very much in the same group IMO though he has become more responsible of late (they have been selling well). He more or less kick started the unlimited money wave.

Calabria played just 10 minutes....
Praying the rest of our internationals (all 12 of them), don't get in the same situation.

We have 2 good young rb's and when Kalulu matures a bit they can play 50-50 and conserve energy. Its a great, great thing! Kalulu's potential is huge. You will see. Guy has everything.

So this also discourages players from wanting to move to other Italian teams if they're in Italy and taking advantage of the tax break.
Clubs take care of taxes, offers to players are net. It should discover Italian clubs from wanting players from other Italian clubs.

Personally I can't stand my nation's team (Dutch team). Bunch of wannabees. I'll be happy when I can watch Milan next week.

It's a bit of a strange rule as well if it applies in the same way to the targets, well educated Italians they want to come back and highly skilled foreign workers. You benefit when you come back, but you're stuck to that same employer otherwise your tax goes back up?

Not to the employer, but to staying in Italy.

You only get the tax benefit if you stay in Italy for two years. If you stay for one year, you don't get it.

Theo with another assist. This time to Benzema.
France's strikers must love him now.

How big is the chance of Italy doesn't qualify to WC?
If Switzerland finish first, what will happen to Italy?

I think they will qualify. They should win in N Ireland and I dont think Switzerland is able to score too many goals vs Bulgaria

But if that happens they will play 2 round of playoff

maybe against Sweden again :lol:

Looking at Italy results, they have been fairly mediocre since euros. Drew against Bulgaria and twice vs Swiss. Lost to Spain as well.
