Transfer block for several clubs?
Have anyone heard of this? http://www.channel4.com/sport/footba...ia/dec16g.html
The Granata are one of only eight clubs in Serie A – along with Atalanta, Catania, Empoli, Livorno, Palermo, Parma and Reggina – who are on track for their financial stability in January.
The others must either sell players to raise cash or introduce new funds to replenish the coffers before they can be allowed to make purchases under the new stricter rules governing spending in Italian football.
I haven't seen that in any Italian site. One guy spotted this news in one German site, who said they refered it from Gazzetta's report. Anyone who can log in to Gazzetta or can read the paper, can you confirm this?
That is absolutely right thing to do, the clubs are in big debts and still they just buy players. Including Inter. But I think Inter can't be included if we really want to buy a player, because Moratti comes and replenishes some new funds.
Still I wouldn't complain, if this is true, since I don't want Moratti gets new players at the transfer window. Our squad is complete. We can put Andreolli on loan maybe, but new faces in Inter jersey aren't needed.
So basically, the clubs that are not financially stable, which includes us?, are not allowed to transfer?
i think these rules are going to be in force to protect the smaller clubs from insolvency
This would be a disaster for Serie A...
I agree with you..

It's inevitable though, in order to raise the standard of Serie A back up. The first thing they have to do is maintain the small clubs' financial status, don't think we are one of them though.
I guess Serie will be entertaining next season with the return of Juventus , Napoli, Genoa.

I would like also Bolonia to come again, they are a classic team.
Where's Inter on dat list???
I think this great in a way that it guarantees the future of the clubs and it gives some stability to the players because they have a "safe" place to work. Of course I can see the rich teams coming up and getting some players at low price, however I believe that with the correct support by the Italian Government this can be the way to go
Moratti should actually start thinking about getting our own finances in the balance.
We can't just keep being a club that lives on the wealth of one person, we have to be able to take care of ourselves...
Couldn't agree more! Moratti spent a lot of money over the years but he never prepared us to the future, I know that we are mostly a buying team and when you are at the top you must accept this. I also understand that good results in football will give us more money, but a team that went without any Scudetto or Champions League as we did should have learned a thing or two about saving money.

I think that if we hadn't Moratti's money we couldn't support all the players we currently have, and with that I don't feel so comfortable.
