What is this?

25 players above 21 years of age at the beginning of the season, with him we are at 24 above that age.

Is not like we can just have 30 plus 21 players just because we feel like it.

It’s not a huge issue for us as we generally keep squad size slim compared to most other teams.

Is there such restriction in Serie A?

In CL there is no such age restriction, it' just about home-grown players so for example Dimarco applies as home-grown as does Di Gennaro.

Yes, they introduced it in 2016 (announced in 2014 I believe) under the former president, but went largely under the radar because of the 4x4 and two none EU purchase rule. I think we have not talked much about it largely because our squad size generally been under 25 individuals for many years now, but I know it’s been a debate in the Milan community as they had 28 at some point. If you go through all 20 serie a teams you see none had more then 25 over 21 years at the beginning of the season, you can have as many under 22 as you like.

It was part of the home grown implementation and to force club to use more home grown players, it was the whole idea about the recent 15 players on bench implementation as well, to grant them more call ups.

From UEFa own site about CL liste

List A :

“No club can have more than 25 players on List A during the season, of whom at least two must be goalkeepers…
As a minimum, eight of those 25 places are reserved exclusively for 'locally trained players”

List B:
“A player may be registered on List B if he is born on, or after, 1 January 2002 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday by the time he is registered with UEFA”

So fundamentally FIGC implies the UEFA CL list rules, with the main difference being that the players must not have turned 22 at the beginning of the season.

It’s not really massive issue for us as we have 26 players of whom two are 21. We have 5 I believe over 21 with contract expiration next summer. So it’s an easy thing to avoid.

I know CL squad restrictions but the Serie A are more interesting. But if the limit is that 25 over 21 year olds, then that's not too hard to achieve. That CL limit of 4 club-trained was always the issue for us. Our squad usually hasn't even been over 25 players.

unless a team really wants to boot out a striker for being a d bag or not wanting to sign an extension no good options will be available unless its a semi retired guy

recalling a youth player seems like a way better move than panic buying someone since no one but Lautaro can score. Or worst we keep Sanchez from going to Saudi Arabia because we need a body on the bench
