Fifa’s number one on player transfers: “In 2019, out of 7 billion euros spent on the market, 700 million went to agents’ commissions and only 70 million to training. We need more transparent and clear rules”
Prosecutors continue to argue. Football mediators, increasingly rich and increasingly important especially in the zero-parameter market, are in fact increasingly targeted. So it happens that a top agent like Mino Raiola is banned from Milan or that the FIFA number one clearly expresses the need to “change the system”.
Speaking at a seminar on the regulation, status and transfer of players (which was also attended by former European commissioner Mario Monti), the president Gianni Infantino declared: “In 2019 the equivalent of seven billion euro was spent. € for the transfers of players, 700 million went to agents’ commissions and only 70 million to training and solidarity fees. Something is wrong, we have to change. ”
A situation that FIFA wants to change, thanks also to the transfer system reform project. “I think – added the number one in world football – that we should make the rules a little more transparent than the current ones, clearer. The clearing house will help, but already the payments for the training allowance will ensure that at least 5% of the total transfers, which out of 7 billion are at least 350 million, should go to the clubs that prepare the players. Clarity and transparency will have to characterize all other payments to avoid what still happens regularly, that is, whenever the Guardia di Finanza of almost all countries looks at some transfer activities, you find something “.
